About me

Annmarie has a wide range of experience in state and federal courts, as well as in alternative dispute resolution venues, primarily defending management in claims made by employees under state and federal employment laws, including claims for sexual harassment, race, gender, national origin, and disability discrimination. She also has defended employers in cases alleging constructive discharge, wrongful termination, retaliation, breach of express or implied employment contracts, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, and violations of restrictive covenants. Her work includes the defense of corporate defendants, as well as individual officers, directors and employees, addressing issues unique to small businesses, as well as challenges faced by large public companies.

In addition, Annmarie provides advice and counseling to human resource professionals and in-house counsel with respect to a wide range of employment issues, including family and medical leave, employee discipline and terminations, disability accommodations, layoff issues, such as WARN compliance, and the negotiation and design of severance packages.  She also drafts employee manuals and employment-related policies and procedures.
