Raymond J. Carey was a highly respected and skilled advisor, trial
lawyer, negotiator, and retired partner in the Labor and Employment
Practice of Foley & Lardner LLP. He has over 30 years of experience
wisely counseling employer representatives within all industries
concerning the diversity of human resource and labor relations issues
that affect the workplace. During his more than 30 years of practice,
Mr. Carey has successfully defended employers and their management
representatives against myriad individual plaintiff, multi-plaintiff and
class action claims involving virtually all types of federal and state
statutory and common law employment-related causes of action, including
EEO, ERISA, FLSA, FMLA, USERRA, WARN, Section 301(a), whistle blowing,
breach of non- compete agreements, breach of employment contracts,
interference, breach of sales commission contracts and policies, and
other federal and state statutory and common law causes of action.
Mr. Carey counseled employers concerning development and
implementation of effective policies, practices and procedure pertaining
to litigation avoidance, hiring, compensation, benefits, wage and hour
compliance, FMLA and other leaves of absence, workplace accommodations,
workplace investigations, promotion, discipline, layoff, reduction in
force, workforce reorganization, discharge, equal employment
opportunity, affirmative action, workplace diversity, and zero tolerance
for workplace violence, discrimination, and harassment of any kind. He
also advised employers with respect to labor/management relations
issues, including effective union avoidance strategies, how to
expeditiously defeat or avoid union facility specific and corporate-wide
organizing campaigns, collective bargaining, grievance resolution, and
other management/labor disputes, and he negotiated collective bargaining
agreements on behalf of employers.
In addition to myriad pre-trial summary judgments and dismissals with
prejudice among other pre-trial resolutions Mr. Carey has obtained for
employers and their representatives consistent with their desired
outcomes, he has successfully tried more than 100 cases in federal and
state trial courts, before arbitrators, and in proceedings before
federal and state administrative agencies, including the NLRB, DOL,
OSHA/ MIOSHA, the EEOC, and the MDCR, among other federal and state
administrative agencies. Mr. Carey also developed and implemented
successful strategies that thwarted attempts by plaintiffs to certify
class actions in over 20 employment cases throughout his career.
Mr. Carey is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where he
received his bachelor’s degree in 1975 and his J.D. degree in 1981. He
has served as a adjunct professor at the University of Detroit and is
actively involved in a wide range of community service and cultural
activities in the Detroit area.
