For almost two decades, Chip has advised clients in a wide variety of industries on labor and employment matters with a primary focus on traditional labor matters under the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”). Chip began his career at the National Labor Relations Board (“Board”) and has experience settling disputes, drafting collective bargaining agreements, and handling purchase sale agreements, reductions in force, bargaining and effects bargaining, neutrality agreements, and strike contingency planning. He often advises clients in the drafting of employee handbooks, drug and alcohol testing policies, enforceability of arbitration agreements, as well as with regard to wage and hour issues and labor matters under the NLRA. Chip also has experience defending an employer against unfair labor practice charges and allegations of bad faith bargaining before the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board.
Chip’s position as a former attorney for the NLRB allowed him to build a deep and varied skill set for investigating, responding to unfair labor practice charges, and negotiating settlement agreements for unfair labor practices.
Chip began his career as an attorney for the NLRB, serving as an attorney to Board members, as well as an attorney for the Office of Appeals and Region 31. Chip also served as labor counsel to the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, where he supported the president and vice president of the organization in various issues related to labor law and assisted the studios effectively arbitrating grievances.
