Delcore brings workplace litigation and labor relations skills to the firm’s Kansas City office
Denise Delcore joins Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli as a shareholder, expanding the firm’s national Labor Relations Practice. Delcore, located in Polsinelli’s Kansas City, Mo. office, is nationally-recognized as a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and as a SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP).
Delcore focuses on the management side of labor relations, working with business leaders to prevent and reduce risk through human resources counsel. She has experience with proceedings before state and federal agencies, and under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and Railway Labor Act, Delcore routinely defends employers against unions in representation elections, unfair labor practice charges and grievances.
“Denise serves as a strong liaison between business management and employees. I look forward to working with Denise and watching her diligent work flourish here at Polsinelli,” said Management-Labor Relations Practice Chair Jay M. Dade. “Denise brings a decade of experience in labor relations cases to our practice, and also continues our momentum in the strategic growth of our team not only in Kansas City, but across the country.”
Delcore also has experience in jury trial settings representing management-side clients on harassment, discrimination, retaliation, non-compete and other employment-related lawsuits. She leverages this experience by offering clients workplace best practices training on anti-harassment, anti-discrimination and anti-retaliation. Delcore also conducts human resource audits, develops comprehensive compliance programs on wage and hour and handles employee leave and accommodation issues under FMLA and ADA.
“As the labor relations industry evolves and becomes more sophisticated, I am eager about this opportunity to collaborate with Polsinelli’s deep bench of impressive Labor and Employment attorneys across the country and to solve some of our clients’ most challenging and complex problems,” said Delcore. “Polsinelli has such a deep history in Kansas City, and it is a pleasure to work for such a reputable law firm that continues to grow smart, and adapt to our rapidly changing industry.”
Delcore has been named to the Super Lawyers list for Missouri and Kansas for the past six years and was named to Ingram’s Forty Under 40 list.
