As an associate in Procopio’s Labor and Employment group, Stephenie Alexander primarily focuses her practice on counseling charter schools, public agencies and private entities to assist with compliance issues and the mitigation of risks of potential claims and litigation. Stephenie’s approach to counseling clients combines guidance on the legal ramifications of federal and state employment laws while offering pragmatic solutions to complex matters. Representative counseling matters include, but are not limited to, hiring and payroll practices, employee classifications, harassment/discrimination claims, leave laws (FMLA/CFRA/PDL/ADA/PSL and others), workplace investigations and terminations. Stephenie also focuses on the development and implementation of personnel policies, handbooks and employment agreements.
