Summary

Levy Employment Law, LLC helps businesses and individuals identify and resolve workplace issues before they result in litigation. With more than 20 years of legal experience, both in private practice and working in-house, I provide straightforward legal advice on sensitive subjects, such as: tardiness, poor performance and employee misconduct; disability/pregnancy accommodations; managing leaves of absence; classification of workers under the labor laws; and workplace restructurings. I develop and deliver training on harassment, discrimination and retaliation prevention, managing leaves of absence and accommodations, effective performance management, and related subjects for groups and individuals. Also I regularly conduct workplace investigations in response to employee complaints.
