MIAMI, FL (November 18, 2021) Nationwide employment law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. is pleased to announce Reynaldo Velazquez has joined the firm’s Miami office as a principal. Reynaldo has more than 20 years of experience in all areas of labor and employment litigation.
“Reynaldo is a skillful litigator who brings substantive experience representing companies across a wide range of industries, including hospitality and healthcare,” said Nadine C. Abrahams and Stephanie L. Adler-Paindiris, co-chairs of the firm’s Litigation group, in a joint statement. “His ability to develop highly effective litigation strategies involving workplace law matters will be of great benefit to our clients.”
Reynaldo works with claims management companies and employment practices liability insurance companies to defend employers against discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims. He is a seasoned litigator who works with various industries including fire departments, hospice care facilities, and many other private and public sector entities.
Reynaldo devotes a significant portion of his litigation practice to defending wage and hour issues arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act and state minimum wage laws. He regularly represents companies in wage and hour matters, including litigation defense, overtime exemption analysis, minimum wage issues, and Department of Labor investigations. Although Reynaldo represents a broad range of clients in a variety of industries, his wage and hour practice is highly concentrated in handling complex issues on behalf of hospitality companies.
