My Focus

Labor and Employment: I advise and counsel employers on day-to-day labor and employment issues, including employee leave matters, wage and hour law, reasonable accommodations and workplace harassment.

 

Highlights include the following:

  • Successful representation of a corporation accused of gender and disability discrimination by a former officer, obtaining a partial summary judgment on the grounds that the corporation did not qualify as an “employer” subject to the Kentucky Civil Rights Act when the alleged discrimination occurred.
  • Successful representation of a corporation accused of defamation by a former, high-ranking employee, obtaining a summary judgment ruling that was subsequently upheld on appeal.

ADA Website Compliance: I advise and represent organizations to ensure that their websites are reasonably accessible to disabled persons.

Looking Ahead

Lawsuits related to alleged discrimination and retaliation show no signs of slowing down in the near future. The role of an attorney is not only to efficiently resolve such disputes once litigation has commenced, but also to aid the client in implementing proactive steps to prevent such litigation or limit a potential plaintiff’s options.
