Genaira L. Tyce represents employers in a wide array of traditional labor law and employment law matters, with a substantial portion of her practice devoted to advising and counseling employers that are actively confronting union organizing campaigns and those that have unionized workforces. Genaira draws on her nearly 10 years of experience as a former senior field attorney with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to counsel employers in NLRB led election proceedings, union card check, and voluntary recognition procedures; respond to NLRB subpoenas compelling document production and individual testimony; conduct management training on the implications of organizing efforts in the workplace; defend employers against claims of unfair labor practices; and negotiate collective bargaining agreements on behalf of clients.
Given her extensive NLRB experience investigating, litigating, and negotiating difficult labor law cases with complex and often controversial factual and legal issues and widespread economic implications, Genaira is skilled in absolving unfair labor practice charges and negotiating pre-trial settlements to help clients avoid trial whenever possible. When a hearing is unavoidable, however, Genaira has considerable experience serving as first chair in unfair labor practice litigation involving collective bargaining, adverse employment actions, joint employer, successorship, workplace rules, strikes, and other issues arising under the National Labor Relations Act.
Genaira also represents employers in local, state, and federal administrative and trial proceedings involving claims of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other protected classifications, and regularly conducts internal investigations, trainings, and wage and hour audits for clients. She also drafts handbook policies to comply with local, state, and federal law.
