Christopher J. Moro is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s Labor & Employment practice group. He represents both large and small employers in connection with a wide range of employment-related matters.
My practice focuses on representing employers in litigation matters and providing preventative advice and counsel.
I represent employers in litigation matters in federal and state courts and administrative agencies. I have particular experience defending employers against lawsuits brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the New York State Human Rights Law and the New York City Human Rights Law.
In my role as an advisor, my goal is to stop litigation before it starts. To that end, I provide advice and counsel regarding a variety of personnel decisions and assist employers in drafting, revising and implementing workplace policies to ensure compliance with federal, New York State and New York City laws. I also provide anti-discrimination, anti-harassment and anti-retaliation training for management and human resources officials.
I am keeping an eye on newly passed and pending legislation—particularly in New York State and New York City—that imposes unprecedented regulations on the employer-employee relationship and makes compliance a moving target for employers. I also foresee the continued expansion of employee protections under existing workplace laws, and more employees filing lawsuits to assert those protections as a result.
