Ann Kiernan has over 20 years of experience in employment law. The Law Office of Ann Kiernan represents management exclusively.
Since 1998, Ann F. Kiernan, Esq. has been a sole practitioner focusing on preventative law for employers, including review of corporate policies, advice on compliance with state and federal requirements, counseling on disciplinary and/or termination decisions, and training on managing within the law, corporate compliance, and preventing harassment.
The practice of preventive law is akin to the practice of preventive medicine. For instance, it’s a lot better to keep your cholesterol low than have a quadruple bypass, no matter how easy and successful the surgery. The same is true for preventive law.
It’s a lot better for employers to have good policies and procedures, enforce them fairly, and train managers and supervisors on their legal obligations than to get involved in litigation. Even if the organization wins in court, there is an inevitable loss—loss of time, productivity and focus, not to mention legal fees and court costs.
As an attorney with more than 20 years of experience in employment law, counseling, training, and litigation, Ann focuses on preventive law for employers—keeping organizations on the job instead of in the courtroom.
