Nicole Stangl’s natural tendency is to establish paths for action.  A savvy problem solver and inveterate puzzle geek, Nicole likes to be involved in shaping the outcome of things.  It’s for that reason she was naturally drawn to the hands-on nature of practicing employment law.

As a summer associate at Ruder Ware, she received valuable training, experience, and exposure working alongside our employment law team.

At Ruder Ware, Nicole:

  • Counsels employers on every aspect of federal and state employment laws, including laws regarding drug and alcohol testing, background checks, employee privacy, wrongful discharge, antidiscrimination, anti-harassment, plant closing and mass lay-off, wage and hour, family medical leave, and reasonable accommodation.
  • Guides employers in conducting workplace investigations.
  • Reviews employer wage and hour practices including, exempt/non-exempt position classifications, meal/rest break practices, off the clock and record keeping issues.
  • Drafts employee handbooks, separation agreements, disciplinary memoranda, affirmative action plans, employment contracts, non-compete agreements and independent contractor agreements.

Nicole loves to run.  A sprinter in college (where she was a 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year Nominee and in 2016 a National Qualifier taking 15th in the nation), she tends to favor long-distance runs these days.  She is happiest when she’s outdoors with her husband and their incredibly sweet dog.
