Using six years of experience as a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) field attorney, Carita Austin collaborates with employers to help them comply with state and federal employment and labor laws, particularly those related to labor unions and organizing rights.
The NLRB process and regulations can be complicated and confusing. Carita understands the agency’s policies, practices and procedures and uses that understanding to advise clients who are facing labor law issues before the NLRB — where timelines move quickly compared to other agencies and court proceedings.
Carita is skilled in helping companies manage risk to avoid unfair labor practice charges. She represents employers in NLRB investigations and related litigation, union representation campaigns, collective bargaining, and arbitrations. She also conducts supervisory training in areas of employment and labor law.
