Scott Gilbert



Scott Gilbert counsels his clients during critical moments of the employment relationship. Whether clients need to create a strategy related to a reduction in force, or understand the application of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Scott helps clients identify and evaluate risk factors in order to minimize liability.  Scott regularly advises clients on matters related to restrictive covenants from both the enforcement and defensive perspectives.  He also advises clients in all facets of employment litigation, from discrimination claims before the Illinois Department of Human Rights and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, through the federal and state courts. Scott also represents employers in traditional labor disputes before the National Labor Relations Board, employee dismissal hearings and arbitrations, and wage and hour issues before the United States and Illinois Departments of Labor.
