Karin assists employers in navigating challenging leave and accommodation issues, high-risk terminations, non-competition and confidentiality issues, workplace investigations, and wage and hour audits; develops and reviews employment policies; and provides employee and supervisor trainings regarding harassment, discrimination, leave law compliance, and other critical HR issues. Karin also advises employers on the significant workplace issues associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, including leave laws, ADA compliance, and workplace safety.
