Ashley M. LeBrun is an associate working with the firm’s labor and employment, commercial litigation, and trade secrets groups.  She regularly counsels employers and represents them in litigation.  In counseling employers, Ashley drafts and revises employee handbooks and policies, advises employers on how to handle requests for leave and reasonable accommodations, investigates employee claims, and guides employers on terminations and on FLSA overtime issues and exemptions.  Counseling also includes drafting and negotiating severances as well as restrictive covenants, such as non-competition, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure agreements.

As a litigator, Ashley has defended employers facing claims for violating the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD), the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA), the New Jersey Family Leave Act (NJFLA), the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (PHRA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.  Ashley’s representation of employers not only includes defense, but also includes pursuing rights of employers whose former employees have violated restrictive covenants and other duties under the common law, such as the fiduciary duty of loyalty.  Ashley is admitted to practice and has defended such claims in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.  She also has defended claims filed in the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations.
