Susan Salen
Ms. Salen has been practicing law since 1987 with a focus on employment law. She assists in the preparation of employment manuals and policies, business ethics policies, proprietary rights and noncompete agreements, documenting performance issues, drafting and implementing performance improvement plans, and when necessary assisting with employment terminations. When needed she defends clients against unemployment claims, wage claims, and discrimination claims before regulatory agencies(EEOC, local human rights commissions) and in state and federal courts. Susan values opportunities to work with clients on a proactive basis with the hopes that the understanding of and compliance with laws will result in the avoidance of or better positions when defending lawsuits and charges. She offers training to her clients in these areas.
