About Me

Employment Attorney - Strategic partner to employers and management; 100% employment law, 100% of the time.

Falon M. Wrigley, a member of the Employment and Labor group, represents management in litigation and provides practical, sophisticated advice aimed at resolving complex legal problems unique to the workplace.

On the litigation side of her practice, Falon defends and advises employers with respect to state and federal employment laws, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) – as well as their state law equivalents.  With a deep knowledge of employment law policies and an eye on the ever-changing economic reality, she routinely handles administrative charges and litigation in connection with claims of failure to hire, wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment, breach of employment and separation agreements, and alleged wage and hour violations.  By following the maxim that “the best defense is a good offense,” Falon works to put clients in the driver’s seat whenever a dispute arises.

In another part of her practice, Falon provides valuable day-to-day preventative and best practices counseling, reviews and drafts employment-related agreements and contracts, and collaborates with employers in the development of client and industry-specific employee handbooks and policies.  Falon also conducts human resources audits for clients who range in size from family-owned regional businesses to publicly-traded, global entities. In this capacity, she reviews selection, hiring, orientation, compensation, benefits, employee relations, performance management, career development, compliance and separation, providing a comprehensive report and suggesting next steps.  Falon then works in tandem with clients to implement cost-effective changes aimed at both decreasing liability and bolstering the employers’ myriad other interests.

Falon has authored numerous articles and educational materials in the area of employment law. She also regularly presents to corporate counsel, human resources professionals and business owners regarding employment law best practices and emerging trends nationwide.
