Stan's passion for employment law began during his federal clerkship, and his practice today spans individual, collective, and class actions brought under state and federal employment laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage-and-hour laws, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.
