As a member of the Littler CaseSmart® team and based in Colorado, David A. Dixon is responsible for handling administrative agency charges from investigation to conclusion. He works on client-dedicated service teams, focused on handling charges. He investigates charge allegations, reviews pertinent documents, interviews key witnesses, and provides clients an assessment of the risks associated with the charge. In partnership with the client, Dave defends the charge by drafting persuasive position statements and responses to the agency’s requests for information and/or pursues resolution of the charge through formal or informal settlement negotiations.

He has represented employers in a wide variety of administrative settings including defending a large number of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and analogous state agency claims, labor arbitrations, Department of Labor (DOL) Wage and Hour Division claims and audits, unemployment claims, OSHA and Cal-OSHA matters, and other administrative matters.
He was active in the Kern County Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Kern County Bar Association, holding numerous leadership positions in both.
