Dan Pasternak works with employers to solve workplace problems. Sometimes that involves helping develop, implement and enforce effective and business-sensible employment and traditional labor relations policies and practices. Other times, it involves representing employers in high-stakes litigation matters.
For more than two decades, Dan has advised employers in managing one of their most important assets – their human resources. From leading workplace investigations and crafting executive and non-executive employment, retention and separation contracts, to designing and supporting large-scale organizational changes and advising clients on strategic labor and employment issues arising in corporate merger and acquisition transactions, Dan’s focus is to find the right solution for employers in an increasingly complicated, highly regulated workplace environment.
But when solutions cannot be found and matters turn to litigation, Dan represents clients in the federal and state courts, before administrative agencies, and in arbitration and mediation proceedings, in employment matters arising under the array of federal and state employment laws, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, whistleblower, wrongful termination, wage and hour collective and class action, ERISA denial of benefits, and unfair competition and restrictive covenant cases.
