Joe practices in the Labor and Employment practice group. 

He has exclusively represented both private and public employers in labor and employment matters since his admission to the Pennsylvania Bar in 1993.

He also counsels and provides day-to-day advice to employers with respect to a broad range of employment-related issues, including wage and hour compliance, work performance management, discipline, equal opportunity and fair employment practices, hiring practices and termination decisions, litigation avoidance, leave issues, retaliation, non-compete and separation agreements, unemployment compensation, and in connection with collective bargaining administration and arbitration matters.
