Molly represents both public and private employers in all phases of litigation in federal, state and administrative proceedings. Molly regularly defends employers against allegations of harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, retaliation, wage-and-hour noncompliance and more. A large part of Molly’s practice involves partnering with her clients in an advice and counseling role, to help to manage human resources issues and to prevent litigation. She regularly consults regarding any number of employment concerns, including compensation, privacy, leaves of absence and compliance with disability and family leave laws. She also negotiates and drafts employment, separation, independent contractor and confidentiality agreements, and works with her clients to develop effective personnel policies.

Molly also has substantial experience in traditional labor law. Molly worked for the National Labor Relations Board prior to joining Hanson Bridgett, and she now represents both private and public employers in proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board and the California Public Employment Relations Board. She also represents employers in labor arbitrations, union organizing campaigns and collective bargaining negotiations.
