As a member of the Littler onDemand team now based in Idaho, David A. Dixon serves as the primary point of contact for Littler onDemand clients, ensuring their workplace legal issues are promptly addressed. Dave brings more than 22 years of labor and employment litigation, advice and counsel experience to his role with Littler. Even before law school, Dave cut his teeth for several years on the front line of the labor & employment realm as a grocery retail manager in a unionized setting.
In his work with Littler onDemand clients, Dave acquires a deep understanding of their business needs and goals, and of their workplace cultures, guidelines, protocols, and resources, enabling him to provide highly efficient, relevant advice and counsel. Dave frequently collaborates with Littler attorneys who bring industry-leading subject matter and jurisdictional knowledge to provide quick and substantive answers to client inquiries. He also leverages Littler’s technology-based tools to access client information and optimize advice and counsel delivered through the Littler onDemand platform.
During the COVID-19 pandemic with Littler, Dave engaged daily with a large number of clients in regard to the myriad and ever-changing challenges of government-imposed operating restrictions/requirements, COVID testing, vaccination, paid leave regimes, privacy concerns, intra-business coordination challenges, safety compliance and other employer responses to a daily-changing legal and regulatory environment. This includes without limitation assessing the most cutting edge and problematic isses arising from considerations of reasonable accommodations based on qualifying medical reasons and sincerely-held religious beliefs, and a full spectrum of the wage & hour complexities presented by the ongoing saga of ever-shifting public policy responses at all levels, federal, state and local - to an employment law scenario not previously imagined that has resulted from the ongoing pandemic.
Prior to joining Littler in 2016, Dave’s legal practice focused exclusively on counseling and defending management in the full range of labor and employment matters, including a broad spectrum of discrimination, retaliation, harassment, wrongful termination and other employment litigation, numerous wage and hour class actions, reductions in force, workplace violence, traditional labor law, harassment prevention and other management training, and frequent day-to-day employer counseling. He has represented employers in a wide variety of administrative settings including defending a large number of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and analogous state agency claims, labor arbitrations, Department of Labor (DOL) Wage and Hour Division claims and audits, unemployment claims, OSHA and Cal-OSHA matters, and other administrative matters.
Dave was active in the Kern County Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Kern County Bar Association, holding numerous long-term leadership positions in both. He co-led and built up CA-SHRM's Hill Day Events at the Capital in Sacramento each year in this period, including developing methods for HR professionals and large industry representatives to coordinate and speak directly in person with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in candid conversations about public policy issues with real impact on California's employers. He was also appointed by Chief Judge Anthony Ishii to serve as the Lawyer Representative to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference. Among the highlights of this role, Dave directly helped organize numerous mass events in Kern County to educate local high school students regarding the United States Constitution, at which hundreds of copies of pocket versions of the U.S. Constitution were distributed to all attendees every year.
Dave firmly believes in reducing risk through management education. He has served as an adjunct professor or guest lecturer for several large educational institutions in California, Colorado and Wisconsin. He co-authored the 1st and 2nd Editions of SHRM’s California Learning System™ and has delivered more than 70 public presentations on a wide range of employment law topics.
During law school, Dave was 2L Class Representative and then Vice President of the Duke Bar Association. In all three years at Duke, Dave was co-director of Public Hearing, an a cappella group, and a member of the Duke Chapel Vespers Chamber Choir.
In late 2010, Dave relocated to his hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado, where he was a member of the Employment Law Services Department of Mountain States Employers Council (MSEC) until June 2015. In 2011 he also assumed the Legislative Director role for the Northern Colorado Human Resource Association, and in that role helped to establish the CO-SHRM Hill Day Event, modeled on his many years of such leadership in California with SHRM. Dave more recently relocated to Idaho to be near his daughter and two grandchildren located there.
