Meet Amy

Legal Practice

I assist businesses and organizations with a variety of workplace matters both in the courtroom and the board room.

 

Litigation:  I represent employers responding to claims of discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination; employment contract disputes; wrongful discharge lawsuits; and wage and hour issues.

 

Litigation Prevention: I advise national and regional clients on employee claims prevention including:

  • Adopting employment practices to comply with federal and state law;
  • Avoiding wage and hour controversies;
  • Employee leave matters;
  • Reasonable accommodations;
  • Hiring and firing practices;
  • Negotiating employment agreements; and
  • Preparing employee handbooks and policies.

 

Highlights include the following:

  • SKO defended employees of a university against claims brought by a former employee under 42 USC § 1983 for alleged deprivations of due process, conspiracy, fraud, contractual interference and breach of fiduciary duty. SKO moved for and was granted summary judgment to all defendants on all counts, and the court dismissed the case.

Looking Ahead

Federal, state and local labor and employment laws are in a constant state of flux, which can create confusion as to an employer’s legal obligations to its employees. SKO’s labor and employment attorneys will continue to play a crucial role in providing practical, preventative advice to help employers navigate these complex laws and regulations, and “bridge the gap” between employers and employees.
