This session, provided by Allison L. Feldstein of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP, will provide an overview of recent labor and employment litigation in higher education, focusing on issues such as discrimination and harassment, NLRB decisions, and wage and hour claims. We will discuss recent trends, court decisions, and settlements, including lessons learned from those decisions.
Allison L. Feldstein has represented management in employment-related and traditional labor matters for 20 years. She regularly defends employers before administrative agencies and state and federal courts in claims involving employment discrimination, retaliation, retaliatory discharge, harassment, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), state and federal wage and hour laws (including FLSA collective actions), and restrictive covenants.
In addition to her employment-related experience, Allison regularly represents management in traditional labor matters, including representation and unfair labor practice cases before the National Labor Relations Board; negotiates collective bargaining agreements; provides counseling during strike and picketing activity; and represents employers in grievance arbitration.
Allison also works proactively with clients to avoid litigation, providing counseling regarding employee discipline and termination decisions, accommodation requests, harassment investigations, workplace violence, wage and hour issues, leaves of absence, reductions in force, restrictive covenants, and union representation and strike and picketing activity.
