Julie Halaby provides strong advocacy and ongoing counsel on employment and business-related matters. She is passionate about representing individuals who have faced unlawful treatment at work. When an employee has been the victim of discrimination, harassment, retaliation or other unlawful practice, or has been wrongfully deprived of compensation, Julie learns the critical details so that her client's concerns can be effectively communicated, and often a resolution can be negotiated with the employer. When an out-of-court settlement cannot be reached, Julie will pursue litigation zealously. Because of her extensive experience handling workplace disputes in a variety of industries, Julie is able to provide practical advice during this process, not just technical legal analysis.
Julie often negotiates severance agreements and other employment-related agreements on behalf of employees, including high level executives and professionals who need an advocate to protect their interests at critical points in their career. There are very few employment attorneys who have as much experience as Julie negotiating these agreements.
Julie is also a valuable resource to business owners. She assists with delicate personnel matters such as hiring, employee counseling and discipline, termination/layoffs, compensation questions, workplace injuries, accommodation of disabilities, return to work/modified duty, and responding to allegations of unlawful employment practices. She helps employers prevent litigation by handling disputes promptly and maintaining proper documentation. Julie prepares personnel policies, independent contractor agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, non-competition agreements, and other related materials to protect the interests of the small business owner.
