Burr & Forman Listed as #1 on Birmingham Business Journal's Labor and Employment Law Firms List
Burr & Forman was recently listed as #1 in the Birmingham Business Journal as having the largest local Labor and Employment Practice. Burr currently has 32 attorneys locally who deal with labor and employment related areas and nearly 50 attorneys firm-wide who practice in this area.
In addition, Labor and Employment Practice Group Leader, Bryance Metheny, was featured in the article discussing Birmingham biggest labor law issues:
"Birmingham's local renaissance as a food and beverage incubator is likely to highlight problems that are common to small and start-up businesses. Rapid growth often leads to wage and hour mistakes in areas like misclassification of workers as independent contractors rather than employees or as salaried employees rather than hourly workers who are entitled to overtime. Litigation in these areas has already been trending, and we anticipate that trend will continue in Birmingham."
