Devora Lindeman has many years of experience in management-side labor and employment law. Her practice is focused on advising both for-profit and non-profit clients on day-to-day employment challenges that arise when businesses have employees, such as discrimination and harassment complaints, accommodations to individuals with disabilities or who are pregnant, compliance with employee leave laws, wage and hour issues, and issues related to recruiting and hiring, performance management and discipline, terminations and layoffs. Ms. Lindeman reviews and drafts employee policies and handbooks, and assists employers to implement various employment agreements, including confidentiality agreements and agreements not to compete, as well as appropriate agreements with independent contractors. Her proactive, preventive maintenance approach enables employers to avoid litigation whenever possible, and to ensure that essential defenses are in place should employee claims be asserted. When needed, Ms. Lindeman represents business clients in employment related litigation in federal and state court, before government agencies and in mediations and arbitrations.
Ms. Lindeman was previously employed as an Associate in the Labor & Employment Department of Proskauer Rose LLP (1999-2007), and as a Labor & Employment Associate with Grotta, Glassman & Hoffman, P.C. (1996-1999). She also served as a Judicial Clerk to the Hon. Stanley R. Chesler, U.S. Magistrate Judge, D.N.J. (1995-1996).
Ms. Lindeman publishes and lectures widely on the legal aspects of human resource issues, and provides compliance and management training for businesses and professional organizations.
