Liskow & Lewis is pleased to welcome Brett Holubeck to the firm as a labor and employment lawyer practicing in the firm’s Houston office.
Brett takes a practical approach to solving problems. He believes in preventing labor and employment issues before they turn into lawsuits. To do this, he works closely with clients to understand the requirements and desires of their businesses and devise solutions that are adapted to their specific needs. Where possible, he conducts client visits to meet with supervisors, HR professionals, and other members of management to assess strengths and help companies improve. He believes that good preventative measures such as training and effective policies not only helps companies avoid lawsuits but enables them to improve their business and employee morale. As the son of a small business owner, Brett understands the importance of having the right policies and practices in place so businesses can do what they do best: serve their customers and clients.
Brett helps businesses identify their problems, determine solutions, and apply practical approaches whether the issue is related to employee discipline or a question concerning labor unions and everything in-between. He works with employers to look beyond legal solutions and adopts a holistic approach to solving any workplace issue that arises. He has experience handling and addressing wage and hour, discrimination, sexual harassment, disability, employee leave, and traditional labor issues.
In addition, Brett is the author and creator of the Texas Labor Law Blog, a labor and employment law blog that discusses some of the most important issues for business owners, supervisors, and HR professionals.
Finally, Brett is a frequent speaker on a variety of labor and employment topics. His most popular topics remain those that help companies prevent problems before they occur and respond to them when they do: “How to Discipline and Terminate Employees” and “How to Conduct a Workplace Investigation.” These topics form the foundation of documenting employment problems and issues to effectively create a record that can help defend a company in a lawsuit.
