Long fascinated by the complex relationships among members of the workforce, managers, and their employers, Amy translates a passion for problem-solving into strategic counsel and effective dispute resolution. Praised by clients as "very knowledgeable," "very objective," and a "superior strategist" (Chambers USA), she thrives on crafting creative solutions to the most intricate of employment problems.
Amy counsels employers on the myriad issues they face related to hiring, disciplining, and termination of employees; family and medical leaves; disability leaves and accommodations; compliance with anti-discrimination and anti-retaliation laws; and workforce reductions. She also drafts and negotiates executive employment and consulting agreements, restrictive covenant agreements, and separation and release agreements, working closely with company management, in-house counsel, and human resources to develop and implement employment policies and handbooks.
Amy's practice also covers a wide range of litigation involving federal and state laws, where she represents management in claims of discrimination, wrongful termination, and sexual harassment. She handles contract actions, disputes over noncompetition and confidentiality agreements, and other business torts.
Amy is deeply committed to supporting her local community. Amy sits on the board of trustees for the Interfaith Food Pantry Network, supporting its work to improve the health and well-being of persons suffering from food insecurity by providing access to food, nutrition education and related resources. Amy also serves on the board of directors for Free the Slaves, a not-for-profit with a mission to liberate slaves around the world and change the systems that allow slavery to exist. For ten years, Amy also sat on the Jersey Battered Women's Service board of directors, working to prevent and address domestic violence.
