Overview

Jeffrey M. Mintz dedicates his practice to providing employment and labor law counsel and strategic advice to employers with an emphasis in labor management relations and positive human resource practices. Jeff is an experienced practitioner before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and has defended employer positions before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and other state and federal administrative agencies and courts. Over the past three decades, he has represented management in over 100 counter-organizing drives and has abundant knowledge with respect to representation elections, related NLRB proceedings and preventive labor relations. He also has extensive experience advising employers facing non-traditional organizing including “corporate campaign” tactics designed to enhance union leverage so as to achieve labor’s objectives.

On behalf of unionized clients, Jeff has served as both chief spokesperson and advisor in collective bargaining. He also counsels with respect to operational planning and strike preparation including potential injunction proceedings, the preservation and exercise of management rights, contract administration and labor arbitrations.

He is a frequent speaker before various trade associations, business organizations and human resources groups concerning legal and practical issues relevant to the employment relationship and regularly trains front-line supervisors as they work to create issue- and union-free environments.
