Seyfarth Shaw LLP is seeking a part-time, hourly attorney to join our exciting Innovative Staffing Team (IST) in the Labor & Employment Department. This is an excellent opportunity to join a premier Labor and Employment law firm and to have the ability to work remotely. Candidates should have 3+ years of increasingly responsible employment litigation experience and must be licensed in North Carolina. Residing near Charlotte, North Carolina is a plus but not required for this position. Candidates should have familiarity with federal court practice, as well as with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Department of Labor, and other federal, state and local government administrative agencies. Candidates should have the ability to handle a practice that includes handling DOL Audits and EEOC charges, including defending investigations, preparing position statements, defending clients in fact-finding conferences and on-site visits, representing clients in mediations and conciliations, and negotiating settlements. Candidates must have litigation experience, including drafting responsive pleadings, handling all aspects of the discovery process, and drafting motions, including motions for summary judgment. The IST is an elite “swat team” of lawyers within Seyfarth who want the flexibility of an hourly position but want the advantage and excitement of working with the best employment team in the country. We now have over 25 IST lawyers around the country and we are attracting former in house lawyers, former partners in firms, and former associates who want the experience of working on exciting matters but not the demands of a full time, partner track position. We are expanding this team and invite you to learn more about this unique opportunity. We offer a collegial environment and an excellent opportunity to continue to develop strong skills and grow with a national law firm. These characteristics all stem from the Firm’s founders and are captured in our core values: Innovation, Teamwork, Client Service, Commitment, and Excellence. Adherence to these core values helps us achieve personal, professional and client service objectives. Another attribute that distinguishes Seyfarth from other national law firms is the degree to which we function as an integrated national organization, with multi-office and multi-disciplinary teams to serve our clients. At Seyfarth, we value diversity and provide equal opportunities to all qualified applicants. We invite you to discover why Seyfarth is recognized worldwide for its innovation. Come experience the Seyfarth difference.
