Labor & Employment

Economists at The Brattle Group have substantial, long-term experience providing analysis and expert testimony on matters related to labor and employment law.

Our principals work on behalf of law firms, state and federal agencies, governments, and corporations to address a variety of labor and employment law issues. We assist our public and private clients with regulatory economic consulting, litigation support, business consulting, and expert testimony before courts, regulatory agencies, legislatures, and arbitration panels.

Key labor and employment topics that Brattle economists frequently address include class certification, discrimination, wage and hour studies, economic loss and damages, salary discrimination claims, and pay equity reviews.

To address issues related to these topics and others, our team of experts conducts rigorous economic analysis based on the specifics of the issue at hand and markets in play. We take pride in the precision of our analyses as well as the clarity of our deliverables.
