Practice Areas

Priddy, Cutler, Leightty & Meade is the leading labor and employment law firm in Louisville, KY. Our lawyers are dedicated to the representation of organized labor, its leadership and members.
Our experienced attorneys have had numerous trials, arbitrations, and appeals and have litigated on behalf of thousands of employees and their unions.
We are committed to the mission of the American labor movement and improving the lives of working people and their families through fair treatment and equal rights for all employees, union or non-union.
Employee rights arise from federal and state laws that, over time, have established various rules that govern the employer-employee relationship.
More broadly viewed, the phrase is often used to refer to rights not explicitly mentioned in law but inferred from legal protections.
