leave a comment »

Gary Gansle Gary is a partner in Dorsey’s Labor and Employment department and is based in the firm’s Silicon Valley office. Gary has helped defeat labor organizing efforts on behalf of clients, and has successfully litigated a wide variety of employment cases involving race, sex, disability, and age discrimination, as well as wage and hour and other employment-related causes of action. He provides clients expert advice and counseling with respect to a wide range of employment law issues. Gary has also established a nationwide training practice, conducting programs for managers and employees on employment-related topics such as “Managing within the Law” and “Preventing Harassment and Discrimination in the Workplace.”

Today Dorsey & Whitney, one of our sponsors, had Gary Gansle come in to our office to hold a workshop on Employment Law.  His presentation was both informative and entertaining, and introduced important laws and good practices for managing employees to our teams at SSE Labs. There are many nuances within Employment Law that startups get wrong 9 times out of 10, and we would recommend any current or prospective founder to invest in meeting with a lawyer specializing in Employment Law before they even begin recruiting potential hires.
