Employment Litigation 

Lindsey serves as litigation counsel for employers facing class and collective actions stemming from wage and hour disputes under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Illinois Minimum Wage Law, the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act, and the Chicago Minimum Wage Ordinance. She also represents employers in employment litigation involving allegations of:

Affirmative Action and OFCCP Compliance

Lindsey leads the firm’s affirmative action/OFCCP compliance team, which assists employers in designing affirmative action plans and represents government contractors during compliance evaluations and audits conducted by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programming (OFCCP) and state and local agencies. She guides and trains government contractors on affirmative action best practices, including legally compliant recruiting, selection, applicant tracking and performance management.

Employment Counseling & Investigations

When internal issues arise, Lindsey leads investigations involving executive misconduct, ethical violations and discrimination and retaliation allegations. Lindsey also helps employers mitigate risk by counseling on:

  • Policy and procedure implementation
  • Employee discipline and termination
  • Wage and hour compliance
  • Retaliatory claim avoidance policies
  • Compliance with all state and federal laws

Commercial & Non-Compete Litigation

When employers need to protect confidential information, Lindsey handles litigation matters concerning breaches of contract or fiduciary duty, tortious interference, trade secret misappropriation, and enforcement of restrictive covenants.

Health Care Provider Experience

Lindsey has represented many hospital systems and physicians in claims ranging from wage and hour litigation, to discrimination claims, to medical malpractice claims, to False Claims Act (FCA) violations. She understands hospitals’ business processes and tailors legal advice to their needs.
