Evan M. Rosen is a principal in the Atlanta, Georgia, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. He is a litigator and counselor who is committed to the maxim, “don’t tell me what I can’t do, tell me how I can legally do what I want to do.” He approaches the law from a compliance and liability perspective, but is also keenly sensitive to the business realities facing companies and aggressively pursues good business results for his clients.
Evan’s practice focuses on representing employers in a wide array of matters within labor and employment law and encompasses:
- Defending companies against discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, breach of contract, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and wrongful termination charges and lawsuits.
- Counseling companies on an eclectic range of employment policies and practices, including for example, hiring, discipline and discharge, leaves of absence, reasonable accommodation, wage and hour issues, background checks, and other workplace policies. He also regularly trains managers and employees on a variety of workplace best practices.
- Drafting agreements and policies, such as employee handbooks, employment agreements, separation agreements, independent contractor agreements, and employment policies.
- Assisting companies with managing their relationship with unions by working to keep companies union-free, spearheading the defense of union election campaigns, negotiating collective bargaining agreements, and defending companies against unfair labor practice charges and grievances.
Evan is originally from New Jersey, but his wife is a good Georgia “Bulldawg.” They have two wonderful children. In addition to spending time with his family, he enjoys reading both fiction and non-fiction books and is an avid soccer and baseball fan.
