Tae is an associate in the firm’s Birmingham office and primarily focuses his practice on assisting employers and companies with the many challenges they face on a daily basis. A significant portion of Tae’s practice consists of employment litigation, and he regularly defends clients before federal and state courts and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission involving claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, co-employee liability, and wrongful discharge, as well as claims asserted under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. He also defends employers in discipline and labor contract arbitration matters before labor arbitrators, and assists clients in traditional labor matters such as Union avoidance election campaigns, and collective bargaining. Tae has significant experience defending clients in matters involving other employment issues including ADA accessibility, employment contracts, non-compete agreements, and drug testing. In addition to reported case decisions, Tae’s recent successes include implementing defensive strategies which have resulted in voluntary dismissal of filed lawsuits by multiple plaintiffs without settlement negotiation or compensation prior to summary judgment.
