Jeff Weintraub Named MBQ Power Player in Employment Law for Third Year Running
MEMPHIS, TN (May 4, 2012) - Jeff Weintraub, managing partner of the Memphis office, has been named a Power Player by Memphis Magazine's Memphis Business Quarterly.
The MBQ's Power Players issue is, as editor Greg Akers has said, "an annual review of who's who in Memphis business, a compendium of the personalities who populate the many industries that drive our city's financial fortunes." First run in 2010, the issue this year boasts 541 Power Players in 42 categories, including the Business Hall of Fame and the 2012 MBQ CEO of the Year winners. Weintraub has been included as a Power Player in the category of Employment Law every year since the inception of the list.
An accomplished labor & employment attorney, Weintraub represents employers in employment discrimination/harassment jury trials, wage/hour collective actions, and union cases, including the expanding field of concerted-activity unfair labor practice charges being filed with the National Labor Relations Board against employers. He also trains managers in avoiding harassment charges, and teaches the Labor/Employee Relations segment in the Society for Human Resource Management's HR Certification Course. Weintraub has been named to The Best Lawyers in America, Mid-South Super Lawyers, and World's Leading Labour and Employment Lawyers (U.K.).
