Laurie draws on her background in human resources to find creative solutions to everyday problems. Her goal is always to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution so her clients can continue to do what they do best.

With more than 20 years in employment law, Laurie’s depth of experience allows her to provide legal assistance to employers in ways that minimize risk, avoid litigation and support long-term business goals. She advises her clients on how labor and employment-related legislation and regulation may affect their businesses and assists clients in developing handbooks, policies and practices. She also guides her clients in difficult employment matters, from employee performance reviews, terminations, reductions-in-force, wage-and-hour issues, and responding to discrimination and harassment complaints. Laurie has conducted sensitive, high-stakes employment-related investigations, and assisted businesses and organizations with business transactions, including drafting severance agreements and advising on due diligence and facility closing and layoff issues.  Laurie regularly drafts, reviews, and enforces restrictive covenant agreements including non-compete agreements and confidentiality agreements, as well as preparing and reviewing employment agreements. 

Laurie handles litigation matters involving Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act, as well as other federal, state, and local laws and ordinances. She also handles unreasonable refusal to rehire worker’s compensation claims and unemployment compensation claims.

Laurie frequently lectures and conducts in-house management and supervisor training for human resource organizations and companies of all sizes in the areas of medical leave management, social media and electronic communication management, and illegal harassment.
