Vincent Polsinelli represents employers across the nation in employment-related litigation. Clients often seek his counsel in connection with complex litigation matters involving wage and hour disputes; discrimination, harassment, whistleblower, and retaliation claims; restrictive covenant enforcement; and other contractual disagreements.
I regularly assist companies in resolving employment-related claims in both federal and state courts, as well as before administrative agencies. The primary focus of my litigation practice involves representing clients in class and collective actions under the FLSA and state wage and hour laws. I have significant experience helping clients obtain positive results in both class-action and single-plaintiff matters through strategic litigation and alternative dispute resolution efforts.
In addition to my robust litigation practice, I provide preventive counseling and compliance advice to employers in all areas of employment law. I regularly advise clients in a broad range of industries on complex and highly regulated areas, such as wage and hour compliance, and work with clients to develop and maintain sound workplace policies and practices. Recently, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, I have helped clients develop vaccine-related policies and practices with a focus on protecting people in the workplace while at the same time ensuring compliance with applicable legal requirements.
New challenges abound for employers, including remote-work accommodations, vaccine mandates, and increasingly dispersed workforces. Employers must continue adapting to these changes to mitigate legal risk and remain competitive.
