Erica brings a data-minded approach to advising and defending employers. Her unique enthusiasm for analyzing client data, exploring compliance issues raised by workplace software, and storytelling through numbers have made her a go-to for wage and hour matters, from internal audits and DOL investigations to class and collective action defense. She also has significant experience working with eDiscovery, forensic examinations, and other digital breadcrumbs, enabling her to efficiently tailor strategies and solutions to the facts – wherever they may be. She puts her creative and analytical skills to work in responding to or preventing a broad range of disputes, such as those involving worker misclassification, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, disability accommodations, employee leaves, misappropriated trade secrets, and confidentiality, non-compete, and non-solicitation agreements.
Additionally, Erica is an engaging public speaker with years of experience presenting on various topics for clients, professional organizations, industry groups, and at conferences. Particularly interested in the intersection of law and technology, she is known for her accessible presentations on issues raised by the use of artificial intelligence, social media, and cryptocurrency and other blockchain technologies. Shortly after joining Fisher Phillips, Erica helped launch its Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Practice Group, which educates and advises employers whether they are simply curious about the technology or looking to adopt it in the workplace.
