Kevin M. Young

Seyfarth Shaw LLP

Kevin Young is a partner in the Labor & Employment Department and a member of the Wage & Hour Litigation Practice Group. Mr. Young focuses his practice on employment-related litigation and counseling, with an emphasis on matters relating to federal, state, and local wage and hour laws. He has defended numerous single-plaintiff lawsuits, class and collective actions, and arbitrations.

Drawing upon that experience, Mr. Young routinely helps employers to draft or revise employee handbooks and policies, train front-line supervisors and managers, and proactively identify and mitigate risk through internal audits.

While Mr. Young’s primary focus is counseling and defending businesses in employment law matters, he has made his deepest impact as an innovator who leverages technology and big data, and teams with attorneys and non-attorneys alike, to manage cases effectively and efficiently. Over the course of his career, Mr. Young has developed litigation document automation tools, worked with economists to develop cutting edge exposure analysis tools for class and collective action cases, and partnered with in-house project managers to streamline nationwide compliance audits.

Through this approach, Mr. Young has successfully defended numerous employers facing actual or threatened class and collective action lawsuits as well as U.S. Department of Labor investigations. His caseload has ranged from the highly complex, such as lawsuits brought as “hybrid” collective and class actions in federal court, to more routine single-plaintiff claims and arbitrations. Mr. Young also takes pride in helping employers to proactively identify and mitigate employment risk, whether through formal audits or routine, day-to-day counseling.

As a result of his track record and commitment to client service, Mr. Young has won the confidence of employers in nearly every major industry, including retail, restaurant, food service, hospitality, staffing, technology, health care, insurance, real estate, financial services, transportation, and logistics, among others. He also routinely writes and speaks on employment law developments and provides training to HR professionals and front-line supervisors.

Mr. Young is active in the Atlanta community. He has represented and formed lasting relationships with numerous Atlanta-based nonprofits, from newer companies first hiring employees, to thriving businesses grappling with complex employment issues. He was named Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta’s Volunteer of the Year for 2014 and served on the group’s Advisory Board for several years. In addition, Mr. Young plays for a recreational ice hockey team, which won its league championship in 2016 (and failed to make the playoffs the following season).

Mr. Young attended Vanderbilt Law School and, for his undergraduate studies, the University of Florida. At Vanderbilt, he served as Vice President of the Student Bar Association and President of the Law School Ambassadors. He also spent a summer clerking for the late Judge George W. Miller of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. At Florida, Mr. Young spent three summers working for Deloitte Tax, where he was introduced to many of the data-driven analytical skills that are foundational to his practice today.
