Labor and Employment

NERA economists have long been recognized as leaders and innovators in the employment and labor field. Our expertise and capabilities span projects involving class certification, discrimination, wage and hour litigation, workforce reviews/evaluations of RIFs, economic loss and damages, contracting affirmative action, availability disparity studies, and sampling and surveys.

Experts in our Labor and Employment Practice specialize in rigorous economic analysis based on the specific details of the employees, companies, and labor markets we study. Our statistical expertise allows us to develop targeted econometric studies that address the critical questions in a case, and we take pride in being able to explain our results using clear, compelling language and graphics.

Our in-house experts provide scientific design, implementation, and analysis of surveys, in combination with a deep knowledge of sampling methods. We also offer extensive data processing capabilities that help clients manage and process large, complex personnel databases with maximum efficiency.
