Jim Swartz partners with employers to address employment-related problems ranging from the day-to-day questions faced by employers in an increasingly regulated workplace, to high-stakes class and collective lawsuits.
A significant portion of Jim’s practice consists of defending companies in alleged Rule 23 class actions under state wage-and-hour laws as well as collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act. In addition, he advises clients on a host of day-to-day employment matters such as wage-and-hour compliance, contracts, non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, pay and promotion issues, and handbooks. Jim also assists employers with workplace investigations of misconduct and audits of EEO and wage-and-hour practices.
