Jessica Schachter Jewell is an associate in the Labor & Employment practice group. She provides counseling and litigation defense to local and national employers in a broad spectrum of industries, including restaurant/food service, health care, technology and nonprofit organizations.
I focus my practice on labor and employment litigation in federal and state courts and before administrative agencies. Specifically, I help employers located in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I regularly defend against employment discrimination, harassment, retaliation and whistleblower claims and routinely obtain “no probable cause” determinations and summary judgment in my clients’ favor.
I also assist clients with a variety of employment-related matters, including properly handling investigations into employment discrimination and harassment claims, wage-hour issues, employee termination and various labor issues.
I ensure that I am up to date on the current laws as well as recent trends so that my clients know what to expect today, tomorrow and in the future.
I’ve been following developments in labor and employment including recent changes to laws affecting interviewing and hiring practices, wage-hour issues and leave entitlement.
