For more than twenty years, Stephen has represented school districts in a multitude of areas falling under the heading of education law and labor law. He has also represented local municipalities in a wide range of labor disputes involving multiple collective bargaining units.
In particular, Stephen represents school districts in matters including student discipline, teacher termination and non-renewals, student privacy issues, budget matters, FOIC issues and employee discipline cases. Stephen’s focus on labor disputes while representing school districts and municipalities includes a wide range of service. He serves as the chief spokesperson at collective bargaining negotiations and binding interest arbitrations. He defends schools and towns against employee grievances, prohibited practice charges, wage and hour disputes and other charges that require him to appear before the Connecticut Department of Labor, the State Board of Mediation and Arbitration, and other administrative tribunals.
With his experience in labor and employment matters, Stephen is also called upon to conduct investigations of alleged employee misconduct. Examples of some of the investigations that Stephen has handled include allegations of hostile work environments, student grade changes, discrimination, and general employee misconduct.
Stephen has also defended public and private sector clients in state and federal court against countless civil actions alleging various claims of discrimination, wage and hour violations, whistleblower complaints, retaliation and wrongful discharge. Stephen is admitted to practice in Connecticut state and federal courts and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. He has also argued before the Connecticut Supreme Court.
