She also participates in labor arbitrations and unfair labor practice hearings.

A trusted advisor, Dana counsels employers on practices and procedures, including employment policies and handbooks, benefits, wage and hour laws, job classification, reductions in force, and early retirement incentive programs. She also advises on issues in union and non-union settings, including hiring, discipline, termination, wage and hour, trade secret / non-compete matters, benefits, disability leave and accommodations, and COVID-19-related matters.
