Sarah assists the team with counseling clients on routine grievance handling, labor arbitration, collective bargaining, alleged harassment, discrimination, workplace misconduct, and retaliation. She also drafts and reviews employee handbooks, policies, and employment agreements, including restrictive covenants.
