She provided an in-depth look at supervision issues that arise throughout the employee lifecycle including pre-hire, hiring, onboarding, ongoing management/supervision, and termination. She also explored how employers should handle religious, pregnancy and disability accommodations, drug and alcohol policies, employee complaints, wage/hour issues, and the concept of progressive discipline.

With more than three decades of experience representing private and public sector employers in traditional labor matters, she has also defended employment cases before juries in state and federal courts in Oregon and Washington and successfully prevailed in client appeals in state and federal courts as well as before the U.S. Supreme Court.
