Experienced Labor and Employment Attorneys Leigh Schultz, Barbara Moore Join Miller Johnson

Leigh M. Schultz and Barbara A. Moore have joined Miller Johnson in the firm’s Kalamazoo, Michigan office. Schultz and Moore are experienced labor and employment attorneys focused on representing employers in traditional labor, workplace guidance, compliance matters, and employment litigation.

“The addition of Leigh and Barbara at a time when employers are actively seeking day-to-day consultation on workforce policies, government compliance measures, and employee management relations is uplifting to our entire client base,” said David M. Buday, Managing Member of Miller Johnson. “They are two of the brightest, most accomplished employment attorneys in Michigan and we’re excited to welcome both to our firm.”

Leigh Schultz focuses her practice on labor and employment consultation and litigation. Ms. Schultz represents public and private sector employers on wide-ranging matters including defending labor and employment-related lawsuits and charges filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), wage and hour audits and Department of Labor (DOL) investigations, collective bargaining and arbitration of labor grievances, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations, and assisting employers with investigations into workplace claims. She often provides training to employers and their employees to prevent issues from arising.

“I am thrilled at the opportunity to join Miller Johnson and continue providing outstanding legal service to my clients and the firm’s broad range of existing clients in health care, manufacturing, construction, energy, education, and more, including the public sector.” said Schultz. “I’ve had a strong professional relationship with the attorneys at Miller Johnson for years and the firm’s commitment to Kalamazoo since the 1970’s speaks to the level of client service we’ll provide.”

Barbara Moore is a labor and employment attorney concentrated on employment litigation and counsels clients on issues related to workplace policies, collective bargaining, employment agreements, claims of discrimination and mistreatment in the workplace, and wage and hour compliance. Ms. Moore proactively serves clients by advising on wage and hour matters, paid leave matters, and has developed specialty areas such as interpretation and application of medical and recreational marijuana statutes regarding workplace policies.

“My practice fits very well with Miller Johnson’s long-standing reputation as a full service firm dedicated to clients and community,” said Moore. “The variety of clients the firm provides employment advice to is amazing. I am excited to learn the insights that come from new and existing relationships.”
