As a member of Davis|Kuelthau’s Labor and Employment practice group, Laurie combines her experience in human resources management with over 20 years of employment law practice to provide creative, strategic counsel and defense to employers of every size on a full range of employment issues. This depth of experience allows her to provide legal assistance to employers in ways that minimize risk and avoid litigation and support long-term business goals. Laurie takes a practical approach to solving employment problems for her clients and achieving their goals in a cost-effective way.

Laurie has handled litigation matters involving Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act, as well as other federal, state, and local laws and ordinances. She has also handled several unreasonable refusal to rehire worker’s compensation claims and unemployment compensation claims.

Laurie regularly advises her clients on how labor and employment-related legislation and regulation may affect their businesses and assists clients in developing compliant handbooks, policies and practices. She also guides her clients in difficult employment matters, from employee performance reviews, terminations, reductions-in-force, wage-and-hour issues, and responding to discrimination and harassment complaints.

Laurie frequently lectures and conducts in-house management and supervisor training for human resource organizations and companies of all sizes in the areas of medical leave management, social media and electronic communication management, and illegal harassment.

Laurie is a member of the Defense Research Institute’s (DRI) Employment and Labor Law Steering Committee, serves as its Publication Chair and chief editor of several of its publications. She is also a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin and the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM).
