Our international law-firm client is seeking an individual to work at the level of a staff attorney in its growing national management-side Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice.

- keep abreast of legal updates around the country (sick time, COVID-19-related laws and guidance, ban the box, credit check, paid family/parental leave, pregnancy (and other) accommodation, salary history inquiry ban, etc.) so as to keep the advice/counsel team advised of such updates;
- maintain and update firm databases, 50-state surveys, and legal summaries pertaining to various state and local laws;
- draft employer policies based on legal updates;
- prepare and assist others with preparation of PowerPoint presentations pertaining to these topics.
A J.D. is required, and the ideal candidate will be barred in a particular state.

You will do work for specific cases (not billed) and for all areas of the labor and employment practice, including review of statutes.
Prior experience as a law school professor is an additional plus, but not required.
