Event Details

Workplace Violence: Employer Strategies for Preventing and Responding to Workplace Threats - Sponsored by Saul Ewing

Employers have a duty to provide a safe working environment for their employees.   The need to address workplace violence is an unfortunate—but important—part of this duty.  To be sure, the federal government reports that nearly two million employees are victims of such violence each year.  This session will advise employers on how to prevent violence in the workplace, assist employees impacted by violence, discipline employees who perpetrate violence, aid others in reporting concerns about violence, and comply with recent laws protecting victims.

Presenter:  Allison Feldstein and Lindsey Kennedy, Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr

Allison L. Feldstein has represented management in employment-related and traditional labor matters for more than 17 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. Allison has written and presented extensively on a variety of labor and employment issues.

Lindsey Conrad Kennedy is a labor and employment attorney who assists employers with claims involving discrimination, accommodations, leave, pay and other issues. Her experience includes both counseling and litigation involving federal and state laws including Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, National Labor Relations Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act. She also provides counseling on personnel issues such as employee discipline and termination, accommodations requests and internal investigations as well as representation before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission. In addition, she helps employers proactively address labor and employment matters by drafting and updating employee handbooks, providing training and drafting and negotiating employment agreements.

  • Advised large, multi-state employer regarding implementation of new paid leave policies and compliance with various state and local laws.
