Douglas W. Hall

Doug Hall concentrates his practice on representing employers in labor and employment matters with a specific focus on the airline industry and the Railway Labor Act. His work includes responding to and litigating issues involving union organizing drives, collective bargaining, and contract interpretation and in the mediation and arbitration of grievances. He also represents air carriers in cases arising under the whistleblower protection provisions of the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR21).

Doug represents management before federal and state courts and administrative agencies in matters involving rights and obligations arising under a variety of federal, state, and local labor and employment statutes. In addition, he counsels clients on compliance with such laws and on the labor and employment issues engendered by contemplated corporate transactions and on efforts by employers in bankruptcy to reject their collective bargaining agreements. He regularly appears on behalf of air carriers before the National Mediation Board (NMB) in representation matters, including those in which it is alleged that two or more carriers constitute a single transportation system for representation purposes.

Doug is co-editor in chief of The Railway Labor Act (BNA), the leading treatise on that statute. He has written on and spoken at and/or moderated various conferences on matters relating to issues arising under the RLA, the FMLA, and other employment laws.
