A major university, a national retailer and multiple healthcare companies are just a few of the clients Davidson French regularly advises on labor and employment matters. Over the last five years, Davidson has assisted in responding to more than 100 EEOC claims for one client with 8,000+ employees, providing guidance and strategy for the successful resolution of each claim. Additionally, he served as lead counsel in a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) collective action for a food service industry client, achieving a favorable settlement and helping the company address operational issues to prevent future claims similar in nature.
A trusted problem solver, Davidson often consults with clients to identify and correct issues before they become legal problems. His practice involves:
- Employment Litigation – Litigating of wage and hour cases, claims of harassment, discrimination and retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and similar state laws, and cases regarding the breach of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements.
- Labor and Employment Law – Assisting employers on employment-related concerns that relate to compliance with state and federal employment laws; counseling and representation on management, employee relations, and wage and hour issues.
Davidson also has experience in traditional labor issues, having helped an automotive parts supplier defend against the UAW’s attempt to organize employees at a local facility. After several weeks, the UAW withdrew its petition for an election.
In addition to his labor practice, Davidson currently serves as the General Counsel for Bass, Berry & Sims and advises firm management and individuals on legal ethics, professional responsibility and conflicts of interest.
