Each day, I wake up to a slew of email updates, new blog posts, media headlines, and a Twitter feed chock full of fantastic information! The amount of data that we have at our finger tips is amazing! I enjoy synthesizing these data points to educate our clients on the best way to handle situations in order to minimize legal risk and defend against claims of liability. Fortunately for our GCHRA attendees, you can attend this monthly luncheon to learn more about most significant legal changes in 2018 affecting the employment law landscape. So far, arbitration agreements, protective covenant clauses, ADA and medical marijuana, wage & hour changes, and (of course) the #metoo movement will be discussed. You won't want to miss this fast-paced overview! 

Learning Objectives:
* Learn the latest legislative, judicial, and administrative happenings that affect businesses and the human resources function.
* Discuss best practices in order to mitigate ongoing risk of employee individual and class action litigation.
* Think strategically about organizational investment in the highest threat legal risks to help provide a stable workplace free from discrimination, harassment, and workplace violence.  

Julie’s practice focuses on client counseling, employment litigation, and dispute resolution. She routinely represents clients before the EEOC, OCRC, DOL, and federal and state courts. Julie’s typical day starts with her reading about the latest changes in labor and employment law. The rest of the day may include quickly responding to client phone calls and emails, researching nuances of employment law, drafting and interpreting employment-related agreements, negotiating various contracts, asking a court or administrative agency to rule in a client’s favor, reviewing policies and employee handbooks, and hopefully making others’ jobs a little easier. Julie also regularly visits client locations to counsel human resources staff, managers and supervisors, and employees on important legal topics. Examples of such training topics include wage and hour laws, anti-discrimination and anti-harassment (or “Respectful Workplace Training”), labor relations, and leaves of absence management.
Julie is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Law. While at UC, Julie founded the Labor and Employment Law Club, was an Executive Member of the Moot Court Honor Board, was elected to the Student Legal Education Committee, and participated in the Alternative Dispute Resolution club. Julie also earned a BSBA from Xavier University in 2002, where she majored in Human Resources and minored in Psychology. She’s also a little bit of a statistics nerd.
Prior to attending law school, Julie got married, bought a house, got a dog, and worked as a Human Resources assistant at a Fortune 500 company. She also worked as a Human Resources staffing supervisor for a local logistics company. She holds certifications as a SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and as a Professional in Human Resources (PHR). Julie sits on the Executive Board of GCHRA, a local SHRM chapter supporting continuing education of human resources professionals. She also enjoys volunteering with and supporting other local charitable organizations. Currently, she serves on the Executive Board of Cancer Family Care, a local non-profit that provides mental health counseling to cancer patients, their children, and their other family members in the tri-state area.
Julie and her husband, Jeff Pugh, are residents of Delhi. They spend lots of time chasing after their two sons, Austin and Caleb. If you need a smile, ask her to see a family picture!
