Alaine Williams focuses her practice on protecting workers rights by representing public sector labor unions. She is seen as an authority on public employee labor law.
Williams furthered the economic and political power of public sector unions in Pennsylvania by drafting and defending PA legislation on behalf of pubic sector labor unions requiring all nonmembers in a bargaining unit to pay far share fees for benefits negotiated on their behalf. This resulted in increased wages, benefits and job security for employees across the commonwealth.
Williams represented 150 disabled state employees, preventing their termination from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. She expanded the value and worth of interest arbitration awards for correction officers and court employees, filled lawsuits to secure payment for public employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and represented 1,000 University of Pennsylvania graduate students who unionized.
Williams lectures and writes articles on employee rights, constitutional matters and race discrimination. She administered an anti-discrimination program for the State of Florida while serving as Assistant Director of the Florida Commission on Human Relations and taught a course on the American legal system to Afghan judges and lawyers while living in Kabul, Afghanistan.
