Overview

M. Levy Leatherman’s labor and employment practice includes defending clients accused of violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and others, as well as in labor matters governed by collective bargaining agreements. A sizable portion of his practice is devoted to counseling and training employers and their employees on compliance with state and federal laws. This comprises areas such as sexual harassment training, policy and procedure manuals, and employment and non-compete agreements. Levy has successfully obtained summary judgment for his clients in many matters, including in mandatory employee arbitration programs that he helped implement.

Levy is proactive on behalf of his clients, including through enforcement of covenants not-to-compete and in obtaining affirmative relief against former employees who have breached confidentiality and other employment policies.

During law school, he was a member of the Moot Court team and the Mississippi College Law Review.
