  • Staying on top of employment-related legal developments and engaging proactively to drive compliance, conduct trainings, and implement other risk-mitigating strategies.
  • Reviewing and drafting contracts and various employment documentation.
  • Managing the company’s representation in employment-related litigation, claims and investigations, and managing outside counsel involved in that work.
