Lindsay Fiore is an experienced trial lawyer defending employers against single- and multi-plaintiff employment cases. She regularly defends clients against claims related to age, race, gender, and disability discrimination, as well as sexual harassment, hostile work environment, retaliation, whistleblower allegations, the Family Medical Leave Act, and wage and hour issues. Lindsay also represents employers in suits brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and has defended employers against unfair labor practice charges. She often litigates employment-related tort and contract claims, including defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and intentional interference with contract/business relations. Lindsay handles appeals for her clients, as well, and has argued before the Ninth and Seventh Circuit Courts of Appeal.
Lindsay has provided guidance on COVID-19-related challenges faced by employers, including the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act (FFCRA) and its paid sick leave and paid family leave requirements, as well as return-to-work issues and establishing protocols for handling COVID-19 exposures or positive tests in employees. She advises on employee safety in the workplace, vaccine mandates, ADA accommodations, reductions in force, furloughs, and layoffs.
