Amy Conway has significant experience in labor and employment law as both a counselor and a litigator. She loves solving problems and regularly works with clients to balance legal risk with their business objectives. Amy advises employers of all sizes on issues involving the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), the Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA), affirmative action programs, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) audits and related state-level audits, employee handbooks, employment contracts, separation agreements, and noncompetition agreements. Her counseling work includes guiding clients through complex issues related to equal pay, minimum wage and overtime rules, and employment-related government contract regulations. Amy also leads internal investigations for employers into employee classification issues and employee harassment complaints.
Amy believes the insight she gets into a company’s business through counseling is invaluable for advancing client goals in litigation as well. She has helped businesses obtain summary judgment on discrimination, retaliation, and breach of contract claims. She has also represented an employer at trial on an unpaid wages claim, which resulted in the court dismissing the former employee’s case in its entirety.
Amy is also committed to pro bono work. She represents indigent individuals in family law matters through the Deinard Legal Clinic and serves as a volunteer attorney with the Children’s Law Center.
