September Legal Update
with Jerilyn Jacobs of Crivello Carlson, S.C.
Mid-Year Legal Update. It has been a year like no other. Employers have had to adjust to constant changing landscape. Meanwhile, courts have continued to issue decisions in employment cases filed years ago. We will review the major employment decisions of 2021, discuss the latest Covid-related guidance and authorities for employers, and address budding new issues, like employees seeking to extend remote work.
Jerilyn Jacobs is with Crivello Carlson, S.C. She counsels private and public sector employers on employment and labor-related matters, including issues involving employee conduct; complaints of discrimination and harassment; wage and hour concerns; compliance with federal, state, and local employment laws; and practical business concerns.
A large portion of her practice is dedicated to litigating on behalf employers in federal and state court, and she has received favorable decisions before the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin; the Wisconsin Court of Appeals; and the Seventh Circuit Federal Court of Appeals. Jerilyn has represented a wide range of employers, from small family-owned businesses to Fortune 500 companies, in federal districts and states around the country, including in California, Illinois, Texas, and Wisconsin. She also appears before administrative agencies, including Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development; the Illinois Department of Human Rights; and the Madison Equal Opportunities Division.
Jerilyn also creates and presents employee training programs for human resources and general staff. She assists employers with reviewing and revising employee handbooks and in evaluating business needs for particular policies. Jerilyn graduated from the University of Southern California with degrees in journalism, English, and political science. She graduated from Cornell Law School in 1998.
