About Employment and Labor Law Division

Welcome

The Employment and Labor Law Division provides advice and guidance to management regarding employment and labor law issues, including the legal standards for taking adverse and performance-based actions; laws regarding discrimination and harassment; issues relating to labor relations, unions, collective bargaining agreements, negotiations, and grievances; and statutes, regulations, and policies relating to the administration of leave and other employee benefits. Division attorneys represent the Department, its bureaus and activities, in administrative proceedings relating to employment or labor law matters before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Federal Labor Relations Authority, and the Foreign Service Grievance Board. This representational function also extends to third-party arbitrations and mediations. Division attorneys assist the Department of Justice and the various U.S. Attorney Offices in representing the agency in Federal courts.
