Other Matters

Karen is open to considering other matters that are consistent with her expertise, but that don't qualify as core "employment and labor law." For example, the Washington Law Against Discrimination — a statute Karen has worked with for decades — extends beyond the employment context and prohibits discrimination in "places of public resort, accommodation, or amusement," as well as in the insurance, credit and real estate contexts. Karen has handled some public accommodation matters under Washington and federal law, and KKL can provide this type of assistance in appropriate cases.
