Since joining the firm, Nancy has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in employment disputes. She has expertise in federal and state employment discrimination laws, including sex discrimination, race and national origin discrimination, sexual harassment, religious harassment and retaliation cases, and in federal and state wage and hour laws (particularly in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and California). Nancy has worked on complex, national class actions, multi-plaintiff suits, as well as on countless individual matters in front of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Illinois Department of Human Rights.
For her plaintiff clients, including many low-wage workers, Nancy has successfully litigated and settled many discrimination and wage and hour cases, including a multi-million dollar class action brought on behalf of migrant farm workers. For her defense clients, Nancy has successfully defended many cases, most often by securing dismissal by the administrative agency or in the early stages of litigation.
