Maurice Baskin has joined Littler Mendelson’s Washington office as a shareholder in the legislative and regulatory practice. He was most recently a partner at Venable and a past chair of the firm’s labor and employment practice group.
Baskin represents employers in the areas of labor relations and union organizing, employment discrimination, and wage and hour law. He is general counsel for the Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. and represented the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace in a 2012 appeals court dispute with the National Labor Relations Board. Employers criticized the board’s notice poster rule which required employers advise employees of their rights to form unions and engage in collective bargaining. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has temporarily halted the rule from taking effect, pending a legal outcome.
