Overview

Roz Fulgoni-Britton is an employment litigator who advises and defends employers across the country facing discrimination, retaliation, and wage and hour claims, including class and collective litigation.

Class and Collective Employment Litigation 

Roz has represented employers in litigation in federal and state courts across the country in more than 10 states. In addition to single-plaintiff claims, Roz is experienced in class and collective litigation involving Title VII discrimination, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) misclassification and overtime claims, and state law claims. Roz has been part of teams defeating putative class claims at the motion to dismiss stage, rebuffing individual claims brought by former class members, and defending against a putative nationwide class involving thousands of putative class members.

Employment Counseling

Because the best litigation defense begins well before a complaint is filed, Roz counsels employers on day-to-day employment issues, including leave management, policy review, wage and hour laws, employee discipline, termination and other best practices. As part of pre-litigation work, Roz represents employers before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Indiana Civil Rights Commission and other local agencies.
