Representative Engagements

  • Sarah Lamar and Wade Herring represented a Methodist church in an ADA case brought by a former employee of the church, claiming that the church and the church conference discriminated against him on the basis of his HIV status. The former employee sued the church and the conference in federal court. Wade and Sarah filed a motion for summary judgment at the beginning of the case asking the Court to dismiss the case as a matter of law. The motion was primarily based upon the “ministerial exception” to federal employment discrimination laws which arises out of the First Amendment’s freedom of religion clause. In response to the motion, the employee dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice.
  • McKee et al. v. Citi Trends, Inc. (4-CV-982, M.D. Alabama): Favorable settlement of FLSA collective action.
  • Old Town Trolley Tours Of Savannah, Inc. v. Jay Womble, Old Savannah Tours, LLC, and Coastline Travel, Inc. (6-2060-KA, Superior Court of Chatham County): Enforcement of restrictive covenant through obtaining injunctive relief and settlement with favorable terms.
  • Clark v. St. Joseph’s/Candler Health Systems, Inc. & The Matthew Reardon Center, Inc.: Summary judgment granted to Matthew Reardon Center on race/sex harassment, discrimination, and retaliation claims, affirmed by the 11th Circuit 2007, cert. denied.
  • Glisson v. Global Security Services, LLC (287 Ga. App. 640 2007): Struck down restrictive covenant, which lacked adequate consideration.

NLRB Posting Requirements Are Delayed Yet Again

By Sarah H. Lamar, published on March 7, 2012, in Business in Savannah.

When Congress enacted the National Labor and Relations Act (NLRA) in the 1930s to protect the rights of employees and employers from certain private sector labor and management practices that were damaging to the general welfare of workers, businesses and the U.S economy, it could not have foreseen the political volley the Act has become today, with opposing forces scrambling for leverage.

Georgia's New Restrictive Covenant Law: Third Time's The Charm

By Sarah H. Lamar, published on June 29, 2011, in Business in Savannah.

Until recently, Georgia has been considered “unfriendly” to restrictive covenants as they related to employment. Such covenants include non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements.

During the 2009 legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed House Bill 173 in an effort to broaden the reach of restrictive covenants and make them more enforceable in the state. The law was contingent upon the passage of a constitutional amendment.

Final GINA Regulations Now in Effect

By Sarah H. Lamar, published on February 16, 2011, in Business in Savannah.

According to the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA), “experts predict that the twenty-first century will see tremendous strides in the new field of genomic medicine, bringing it into mainstream medical practice.”

As the number of genetic tests have increased, specifically for individuals testing to see if they are at risk for developing a specific disease or disorder, so do concerns of the general public about whether they may be at risk of losing access to health coverage or employment if both insurers and employers have their genetic information.

Benefit Packages Gain Importance in the Current Economic Climate

By Sarah H. Lamar, published on December 2, 2009, in Savannah Business Journal.

The current economic climate has largely halted the luxury of shopping around for a job. In fact, during the recession, most employees are ranking their monetary needs according to basic necessities, including the value of a good benefits package. While compensation is of obvious importance, benefits are increasingly becoming an extra consideration in the pursuit of financial viability.

“The trend has shifted the responsibility of planning, preparing, and funding a typical employer defined benefits type plan to 401(k) type plans, or contribution plans,” said Jim LaHaise, executive vice president and chief banking officer at The Coastal Bank. “A change in the business model and the transition to today’s highly portable employee has contributed to this current trend in 401(k), IRA’s, and rollover plans.”

The Americans Disabilities Act Can Affect Your Business

By Sarah H. Lamar, published on December 6, 1999, in The Business Report & Journal.

Business owners not currently employing disabled individuals may think the American Disabilities Act should be of little concern to them. However, employers should be aware of changes and requirements of the Act that could indeed impact many of their hiring, tiring and promotion practices.

Congress passed the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”)in 1990 to eliminate discrimination against individuals with disabilities. The ADA broadly impacts the relationship between employers and their employees. Although the ADA was modeled closely on the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which still applies to entities receiving federal financial assistance, the reach of the ADA is much broader. The ADA has three main sections or “titles” – Title I prohibits discrimination by employers; Title II prohibits discrimination by public agencies; and Title III prohibits discrimination by “public accommodations,” such as stores, theaters, and restaurants.
