She advises clients on important hiring, discipline and termination decisions, and on best practices for performance management and documentation, which allows for successful defense of these decisions. Clients look to her advice on negotiating reasonable accommodation issues, addressing employee absenteeism and misconduct, and as compliance with wage and hour laws. She also provides practical guidance in connection with the Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and other state and federal leave laws that helps employers manage leaves of absence. She drafts and revises employee handbooks, contracts and policies.
