Portland Lawyer Receives Prestigious 2017 Pacesetter Award
Attorney Todd Lyon was recognized by the National Public Employer Labor relations Association (PERLA) for improving public sector employee relations in Oregon. One of just four attorneys recognized across the United States, National PERLA commended Lyon for his advocacy work and writing key amicus briefings that furthered the cause of public sector human resources. Lyon is a partner in the labor and employment law firm Fisher Phillips.
“As appreciative as I am for being recognized,” said Lyon, “I am excited that my legal filings were adopted by the Oregon Employment Relations Board and will influence future human resources actions.”
The Employment Relations Board resolves disputes for approximately 250,000 public and private sector employees.
The Pacesetter Award
PERLA provides development and advocacy services to public sector labor leaders and human resource managers. Its goal is to maximize the efficiency of public services to all taxpayers. The Pacesetter award recognizes those who have provided important contributions, tools, or helped resolve conflicts to improve employee relations.
“We all benefit from Todd’s efforts,” said Fisher Phillips Partner Rich Meneghello. “The pro bono briefs he provided will contribute meaningfully to the state’s relationship with its employees.”
