Overview

Chuck Trowbridge represents and advises employers in a wide range of labor and employment matters involving workers’ compensation, workplace safety, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, misclassification, wage and hour regulations, and wage garnishment issues. He defends employers in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies, and he has successfully argued before the Court of Appeals of Virginia.

In addition to his litigation practice, Chuck strives to provide practical and creative solutions that meet each client’s unique needs and goals. He advises clients on various employment law issues to ensure compliance with:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act

  • Other federal, state, and local employment laws

Recently, a substantial portion of Chuck’s practice is devoted to advising employers on the day-to-day issues of managing responses to COVID-19. His advice practice is focused on helping employers manage potential litigation risks, preventing workplace safety issues, and advising them on how to reopen safely so they can focus on safely and effectively managing their business during these unprecedented times.

Outside of the office, Chuck served as a mentor for first-year law students in the Washington, D.C. area while volunteering with the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity. He is also a member of Littler’s “Fun Committee,” where he plans and organizes office events.

Prior to joining Littler, Chuck practiced at another law firm in Virginia where he represented employers in workers’ compensation matters. While in law school, Chuck served as a peer advisor and as president of the Virginia Sports Law Society.
