FortneyScott is a Washington, DC-based law firm counseling and advising clients on the full spectrum of workplace-related matters. The firm offers clients unparalleled experience and expertise by its attorneys, who formerly held senior positions at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and other government agencies, in corporate and Congressional legal staffs, in major law firms, and who served as a judge on an international tribunal. FortneyScott represents clients in agency enforcement matters and rulemakings, administrative hearing, and litigation matters, including mediation and arbitration.
Our practice focuses on employment discrimination and labor matters. We represent clients before government enforcement agencies governing the workplace, including the DOL, EEOC and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and on matters ranging from the routine to a wide array of workplace-related crisis situations. Our attorneys have significant experience in Wage and Hour compliance; federal contractors' affirmative action and nondiscrimination obligations that are enforced by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP); investigation and resolution of EEO and harassment, Sarbanes-Oxley and other workplace claims; and related training and compliance programs.
Additionally, we counsel and represent both employers and executives in domestic and international employment and compensation matters, including negotiating, revising and reviewing employment, compensation, option, and severance agreements; and consulting and related service agreements.
Finally, we have an international practice that includes dispute resolution, arbitration and serving in a judicial role as the U.S. Member of the United Nations Administrative Tribunal in Geneva and New York; as well as counseling foreign-based clients on complying with U.S. workplace laws, and advising and assisting U.S. employers in expanding outside the U.S.
