Janilyn Brouwer Daub Partner
With a practice that is national in scope, Janilyn frequently advises clients on issues related to affirmative action plans, including plan preparation and defense of Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) audits, as well as conducting compensation analyses. Janilyn offers extensive experience helping clients prepare employee handbooks and policies and advising them on issues such as the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, wage and hour laws, and in preventing and dealing with harassment. She frequently provides training sessions to clients and presents seminars on these topics.
Janilyn is at her best when partnering with clients to address, manage and overcome their organizational “people problems” by providing tangible solutions that actually make a difference.
Notably, Janilyn also represents educational institutions, including clients involved in higher education and K-12. She works with colleges, universities and other educational facilities to comply with Title IX issues related to race, gender and the like, as well as assists them through and beyond student challenges such as myriad disability accommodation matters. She also advocates her client’s position before the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, helps create and implement policies and procedures specific to educational institutions, and addresses Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) issues that protect the confidentiality of student records.
Simply, Janilyn is valued for her ability to render consistently valued advice and practical solutions to the employee-related challenges her clients face daily. She is appreciated for her straightforward approach to problem-solving and for her genuine commitment to meeting each client’s needs in a pragmatic and business oriented manner.
