Employment Disputes & Labor Negotiations


ECONorthwest provides economic analysis for labor and management in litigation matters and labor contract arbitration.

Employment Issues

ECONorthwest's litigation support team has extensive expertise with wrongful termination cases, discrimination cases, and related employment matters. We assess claims for lost earnings and economic damages, and perform statistical analysis regarding discrimination claims.

Labor Issues

Our labor-related experience includes evaluating workers’ compensation claims, assessing pricing practices of organized labor, estimating the costs and benefits of labor regulation, and consulting on violations of employment-related contracts (e.g., non-compete agreements).

Public Interest Arbitration

We help unions and employers prepare for arbitration negotiations by:

  • Assessing the relevant public interest in the negotiation and its relationship to an agency’s contract offer.
  • Applying economic theory to arbitration statutes.
  • Measuring total compensation for similar work in comparable communities.
  • Analyzing local and national labor market conditions and cost-of-living adjustments.
  • Assessing an agency’s ability to pay and ability to attract and retain qualified workers.
