His practice includes multiple party or class action matters involving a wide array of employment issues. In over 30 years of practice, Mr. Siler has maintained an active trial practice including numerous jury trials in the Federal Court system and numerous arbitrations regarding the interpretation of collective bargaining agreements. He has represented employers in Title VII, ADEA, ADA, FLSA, FMLA, OSHA and ERISA cases, as well as cases involving the NLRA and LMRA.
