Ashley Hager

Troutman Sanders LLP

Ashley Z. Hager’s clients turn to her as a trusted advisor in all areas of employment law. She is particularly experienced in drafting agreements for executives, handling sensitive investigations, and advising on and litigating disability-related issues.

Ashley works with companies of all sizes – from public companies to startups – providing employment-related counseling, drafting the contracts they need to both retain their executives and protect their company’s confidential information and customer relationships, and defending them in litigation.

With each client, Ashley helps members of management and human resources protect their company and minimize employment-related problems by providing general employment and human-resources consulting on issues such as compensation structures, leaves and discipline, disability and fitness-for-duty issues, outsourcing arrangements, employee and manager handbooks, federal contractor obligations, and employee privacy issues.

Clients also call on Ashley when they are ready to audit their employment practices, need to investigate complaints of harassment, or just want to brainstorm solutions to knotty problems involving employees.

A significant portion of Ashley’s practice involves the drafting and defense of agreements with executives and other employees. These agreements range from employment agreements with executives to noncompete, nondisclosure and nonsolicitation agreements with other employees. Ashley also drafts expatriate, retention and separation agreements for clients, as well as commission plans and severance plans.

With more than 20 years of litigation experience, Ashley is able to handle single-plaintiff and multi-plaintiff harassment, discrimination and retaliation litigation for employers under Title VII, Section 1981, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act, as well as individual and collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

She also is ready to help clients respond to audits and investigations by the EEOC, the Department of Labor and the OFCCP. Where appropriate, Ashley partners with eMerge, the firm’s eDiscovery provider, to ensure that electronic documents are collected, reviewed, analyzed and produced in an efficient manner.
