For more than 20 years, Jeremy J. Glenn has represented management in all facets of labor and employment litigation and counseling matters. Jeremy’s practice encompasses negotiations and disputes that arise from the onset of the employer-employee relationship.
He has defended class action wage and hour/overtime disputes, EEO class actions, and retaliatory discharge cases. He has obtained TROs and preliminary injunctions in response to labor disputes and tried dozens of labor arbitrations along with leading collective bargaining negotiations for employers and employee associations covering thousands of employees.
Jeremy has experience with investigations and litigation with the EEOC, OFCCP, and Department of Labor, and infuses these lessons into counseling clients to close-out government audits and avoid litigation. Jeremy currently serves as the managing partner for the firm’s Chicago office.
Jeremy’s counseling emphasizes a proactive approach to human resources counseling to help his clients avoid litigation through effective workplace policies, procedures, and training programs and these innovative ideas led to appearances on CBS’ The Early Show with Bryant Gumbel and in Crain’s Business Insurance magazine.
Jeremy regularly speaks and writes for employer associations and national publications on employment law topics. He is an active leader in the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section and has held numerous leadership positions including co-chair of the ABA’s Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee, the largest committee devoted to federal wage and hour laws.
