Rest Periods, Meal Breaks, and Overtime – Oh My! What You Need To Know About Wage & Hour Laws
Julie provides labor and employment counsel that is outcome based. Before giving advice, she asks her clients what they want or needs as the outcome of their matter; then skillfully crafts a pragmatic, business-centric solution to the issue.
Julie actively navigates employers of all shapes and sizes through the legal pitfalls of the employment relationship from its inception at recruitment and hiring through the implementation of policies and procedures, and the conclusion of the relationship with the termination/separation process. When litigation becomes necessary, Julie aggressively advocates for clients in the areas of traditional labor and employment law, including but not limited to discrimination/retaliation cases, non-competition/non-solicitation enforcement, wage, and hour litigation, and employment and labor arbitrations.
