Kathy Perkins, Kathy Perkins LLC Workplace Law & Mediation, Lawrence, Kansas
After 25 years litigating employment disputes in corporate law firms, Kathy Perkins created her own company in 2008, centered around resolving workplace disputes as early as possible. She saw the tremendous cost to employers and ex-(usually)-employees of wrongful discharge, misclassification and other lawsuits. These include not just money paid to attorneys or in settlement, but costs in terms of stress, time, and invasion of privacy into email, mental health records, and so on. Kathy began analyzing what could have been done to avoid each lawsuit. She provides proactive counseling to employer clients, including home health and caregiver agencies. She conducts manager training on employment laws and litigation avoidance. She independently investigates claims of harassment. She serves as a mediator, working with both parties to come to a mutually agreeable resolution. Kathy is a graduate of Harvard Law School and Kansas State University.
