She has dedicated a substantial portion of her international practice to cross-border safety and security issues and has advised clients on creating and implementing effective global safety and security policies. Lauren recently was invited to author a white paper published by the International SOS Foundation, which was drafted in partnership with the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, which analyzes safety issues for U.S. employers that have a globally mobile workforce: “Legal Perspective on the Health, Safety & Security Responsibilities for a Mobile Workforce.” The white paper was published in February of 2017 and addressed the employer’s duty of care to its employees both domestically and abroad, including the employer’s duty to understand the threats its employees may face and how to respond to these threats from a preventative standpoint. She also regularly presents and speaks on related global employee safety issues.
Lauren also assists employers throughout the United States in crafting employment agreements and implementing employee handbooks and personnel policies and procedures for their domestic workforce. Lauren defends employers against employment-related claims in federal, state, and local venues. Lauren has defended employers in disputes arising under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), as well as state anti-discrimination and wage laws, and defamation statutes.
Lauren also litigates matters concerning employee recruitment and movement of employees between competitive firms, including covenants not to compete, employee raiding, and trade secrets. She has handled such matters in courts throughout the country, as well as specialized arbitration venues such as FINRA Dispute Resolution, Inc.
