BMD’s healthcare litigation team has extensive experience supporting healthcare providers in the following areas: employment discrimination, administrative agency and court-based employment litigation; traditional labor litigation, high-level strategic planning and representation in union-organizing campaigns, collective bargaining, grievance and arbitration representation, NLRB, and related court proceedings; labor and employment aspects involving acquisitions, divestitures, and bankruptcy work; executive retention, compensation, and separation; ERISA and employee benefits; and other areas of regulation, such as OSHA and wage and hour regulation. Additionally, BMD’s class action experience includes representation of employers in wage and hour and employment discrimination cases.
Former healthcare employees who misappropriate trade secrets and confidential information can harm the business of their former employers. BMD attorneys are well versed in obtaining injunctions against such unfair competition. We also provide proactive counseling and representation related to the protection of trade secrets and the need for non competition agreements before such problems arise.
BMD regularly advises clients on issues related to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state laws involving a variety of issues such as minimum pay, calculation of overtime pay, requirements for exemption from the overtime pay requirements, maximum hour requirements, payment upon termination of employment and other wage payment issues, prevailing wage issues, and additional pay-related matters.
BMD healthcare attorneys provide the complete range of health care-related criminal defense services, from assisting clients with routine compliance and regulatory issues to defending extraordinary investigations that threaten catastrophic penalties. BMD has represented targets of government health care investigations, prosecutions, and civil lawsuits, from physicians to hospitals. We develop and implement corporate compliance plans for hospitals/health systems, managed care organizations, laboratories, and other health-related entities. Additionally, BMD has and will continue to serve as special regulatory counsel to health care organizations and private not-for-profit health care systems under federal investigation for alleged fraud and abuse and billing improprieties.
