Tiffany helps employers manage the workforce. She is experienced with employers of all sizes, in all industries, with and without union representation. 

Tiffany helps employers avoid costly disputes and maintain positive employee relations by working with clients to develop risk-mitigation strategies. In this regard, Tiffany assists employers with compliance measures, such as internal investigations and staff and supervisory training, and provides employment resources tailored to each client’s specific business needs – including employee handbooks, performance management plans, and restrictive covenant agreements. For employers with a unionized workforce, Tiffany represents the employer at the bargaining table.  

Tiffany helps employers manage their operations by answering day-to-day questions about everything from hiring to firing, including medical leave, drug testing, and reductions in force. She routinely provides advice on basic and complex discrimination and harassment issues, as well as a host of other issues arising under Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the National Labor Relations Act, and similar state and local laws. For employers with a unionized workforce, Tiffany also assists with administering collective bargaining agreements.

Tiffany helps employers resolve personnel disputes when they arise, both inside and outside the courtroom. She takes time to understand the client’s specific goals, and manages the situation accordingly. When called for, she vigorously defends employers in administrative proceedings, grievance arbitration, and state and federal litigation. Tiffany also has extensive experience litigating restrictive covenant actions and representing institutions of higher education in Title IX disputes.
