ABOUT

My name is Aimee Lin.  I am glad you are here because that means you want to learn more.  I have been practicing employment law for 18 years.  I have represented clients in employment-related litigation in federal and state court, in arbitration, and before administrative agencies (such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) for my entire career.

Such matters have included:

  • All types of federal and state law discrimination claims, including claims based on race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, and disability (as well as perceived disability).

  • Harassment claims.

  • Retaliation claims.

  • Family Medical Leave Act claims.

  • Whistleblower claims.

  • Wage and hour claims.

  • Department of Labor audits.

  • Various tort claims arising from the workplace including defamation, false arrest, malicious prosecution, assault, intentional/negligent infliction of emotional distress, negligence, and negligent hiring and supervision.

  • Breach of non-compete claims.

  • Misappropriation of employer's confidential/proprietary information claims.

  • Breach of promissory note claims, including execution of wage garnishments.

Hand-in-hand with my litigation practice has been my advisory practice, where I have advised and counseled employers on employment issues, including disability accommodation, leaves of absence, employee discipline, internal investigations and compliance with wage and hour laws.  I make recommendations with an eye toward mitigating risk while satisfying my clients' business and operational needs.  I also advise with respect to employee handbooks and policies.  Finally, I have conducted anti-workplace harassment training to employees of all levels, including non-management, management and principals.
