Overview

Elizabeth Levine is Counsel in the Firm’s employment and litigation practices with a focus on management-side employment law, proactively counseling employers with respect to personnel policies and other related matters and defending organizations in employment based litigation. In particular, Elizabeth counsels employers on a day-to-day basis in all aspects of their relations with employees, including hiring, discipline, leave, wage and hour law, accommodations, terminations and compliance with federal, state and local employment laws. She also regularly prepares employee handbooks and personnel policies. Elizabeth further drafts and advises with respect to an employer’s contractual obligations arising out of offer letters, employment agreements (including incentive and executive compensation), and restrictive covenants such as non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements.

Elizabeth counsels clients with respect to employee related issues in connection with emerging businesses, consultant classification issues, target acquisitions, sales, mass layoffs and the cessation of business (WARN Act and state law counterparts). As a trainer certified by the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, Elizabeth routinely presents to employers and their workforces on issues of harassment and discrimination prevention, diversity and accommodation of disabled employees and investigates claims of harassment and discrimination in the workplace. 

Elizabeth advocates for and has represented employers before state and federal courts and administrative agencies in a broad range of matters, including harassment, discrimination and retaliation claims based on protected class membership, wrongful termination, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, violation of non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements and purported violations of federal and state wage and hour laws. She also has extensive experience representing clients in alternative dispute resolution proceedings, including mediation and agency conciliations.
