Welcome to the new McNees Wallace & Nurick Labor & Employment Blog!
Our goal is to provide you with the latest updates, analysis, and commentary on how the law impacts employers at the national, state, and local level. Our attorneys in Harrisburg, Lancaster, Scranton, State College, and Columbus, Ohio discuss topics (with a focus on Pennsylvania law) including employment litigation, wage & hour issues, unions, social media, discrimination & harassment, employee benefits, affirmative action, workers’ compensation, and more.
Over the past year, we have been lucky to welcome five new members to the Labor & Employment Group:
- Kathleen (“Kathy”) Duffy Bruder joined the McNees Government Relations and Labor & Employment Practices in February. Kathy has extensive knowledge of government operations, regulatory, and administrative issues, as well as significant experience working with state agencies and private business on critical economic development and transportation initiatives.
- Paul Clouser joined McNees in August, practicing in the firm’s Lancaster office. Paul has 25 years of experience representing clients in workers’ compensation matters and employment litigation.
- Denise Elliott also joined McNees in August and also practices in the firm’s Lancaster office. Denise focuses her practice on defending self-insured employers in workers’ compensation matters and providing representation and counsel to clients in employment discrimination litigation, ADA/FMLA compliance, and safety and health issues.
- Sarah Ivy joined McNees in July. As an attorney in the firm’s Employee Benefits group within the Labor & Employment practice group, Sarah brings over 15 years of experience in the areas of employee benefits law, taxation, and executive compensation. She will reside in the firm’s Lancaster office.
- Finally, Gina McAndrew joined the firm’s Scranton office where her practice focuses on private and public sector labor relations, equal employment opportunity, and general employment and labor law, emphasizing collective bargaining, arbitration, and defense of all forms of wrongful discharge and discrimination claims.
Contributions to the blog and staying ahead of trends and challenges is important–but most important is our “Clients First” mentality and foundation of quality service. It’s a dynamic time to be a business owner, Human Resources professional, or labor & employment attorney. With constantly changing laws and regulations, a new Governor, a looming presidential election, and multiple major employment law cases before the United States Supreme Court, we are excited to bring you articles and stories that impact your business.
