Biography

Chad Richter is Office Managing Principal of the Omaha, Nebraska, office of Jackson Lewis P.C.

Mr. Richter’s practice is divided into three areas: (1) preventive counseling and training; (2) traditional labor law; and (3) workplace litigation. With regard to Mr. Richter’s preventive practice, he routinely provides day-to-day advice and counseling to management on a variety of employment law matters including human resource management, traditional labor relations, employment discrimination, wage and hour, privacy, disability leave management, and reductions in force. Mr. Richter routinely assists management in workplace audits, preparing contracts and workplace policies, complex employment investigations and developing and presenting training curriculums on numerous employment and labor law topics. Mr. Richter has developed a host of training models designed to educate all levels of management from front-line supervisors to the most senior executives and board members in the organization. Mr. Richter develops training that is highly interactive, engaging, and educational.

Mr. Richter also assists organizations during labor organizing campaigns, labor negotiations and routinely represents management in labor arbitration proceedings nationally. Provided litigation arises, Mr. Richter also defends management before federal and state administrative agencies and before federal and state courts throughout Nebraska, Missouri and Iowa.

Mr. Richter routinely presents both locally and nationally to business and civic organizations on a variety of employment and labor related topics. For example, recently Mr. Richter spoke at the annual Corporate Counsel Conference in Los Angeles, California in October 2013 and in Washington DC in 2012; the national convention of the Society of Human Resource Management in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2011; the American Teleservices Association national convention in Washington, DC in 2011; presented numerous times to the Association of Corporate Counsel nationally; and presented at the Nebraska Chapter of the Society of Human Resource Management annual convention in Omaha, Nebraska in September, 2013.
