Our firm works with healthcare industry clients to ensure compliance under ever-changing laws specific to the healthcare sector, including laws pertaining to mandatory breaks, flexible scheduling, and minimum staffing requirements. Our representative experience advising and defending non-profit and for-profit healthcare industry employers includes:
- Advising clients on issues related to alternative work arrangements, meal and rest breaks, and overtime considerations unique to healthcare employers;
