Amy joined Stoll Keenon Ogden’s Louisville office in 2015 and is in the Labor, Employment & Employee Benefits practice. Amy represents a variety of national, regional, and local employers, from franchised auto dealerships to healthcare organizations.

As employment laws continually change, Amy counsels businesses and organizations on how to navigate complex statutes and regulations, which can create confusion around an employer’s legal obligation to their employees. She provides practical, business-tailored advice that helps employers bridge the understanding gap in their organizations and avoid costly challenges in the courtroom.

Prior to beginning her practice at SKO, Amy served as a clerk for the honorable Candace J. Smith, U.S. Magistrate Judge in the Eastern District of Kentucky.

Labor, Employment & Employee Benefits: Amy has experience in all areas of employment law, from pre-litigation investigations to litigation and appeals. She also handles agency investigations, including proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor, and the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights.

Amy routinely advises employers on strategies to resolve workplace issues and prevent litigation by offering recommendations on day-to-day operational practices and broader employee-related policies. She has also conducted training for her clients relating to a variety of issues, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

In cases of litigation, Amy represents employers responding to claims of discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination, employment breach of contract, and wage and hour disputes, among other concerns.

Auto Dealer Services: Automobile manufacturers and franchised dealers are among the employers that Amy advises through her practice at SKO. She has a deep understanding of the industry and customizes her recommendations to match her client’s unique needs.

Health Care: Amy also counsels healthcare organizations and providers on a wide variety of employment-related matters.  Her thorough knowledge of the evolving regulations governing the industry allows her to identify opportunities to reduce risks and costs.

Work Highlights

  • Defense of Discrimination and Retaliation Claims

    Served as first chair in SKO’s successful defense of its clients against claims brought by a former manager in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky alleging FMLA retaliation and gender discrimination in violation of the Kentucky Civil Rights Act. The plaintiff sought lost wages of more than $480,000 and emotional distress damages on her sex discrimination claim of nearly $1.5 million. After a six-day jury trial in May 2022, an eight-member jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the company, finding that the company had not engaged in unlawful retaliation or discrimination. SKO’s trial team won the case by proving to the jury that the company had a legitimate, non-discriminatory and non-retaliatory basis for the manager’s termination: her consistently poor performance, which she failed to improve despite repeated efforts by the company.

  • Summary Judgment—FMLA Retaliation

    Secured summary judgment for a manufacturing corporation accused of FMLA retaliation by a former employee.

  • Dismissal of Race Discrimination and Retaliation Claims

    Secured dismissal of race discrimination and retaliation claims when the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky granted SKO’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings and dismissed Plaintiff’s claims as barred by judicial estoppel.
