On April 5, 2020, Nick Reiter, co-chair of the Labor and Employment Group, was recognized by City & State in its inaugural Labor 40 Under 40 list. This award recognizes labor leaders – union officials, attorneys, government staffers, advocates, activists, and academics – who play an outsized role in New York City and state politics and policymaking. The following excerpt is from a profile that was published by the magazine:
Coming off a federal clerkship where a lot of the cases were related to employment, Nicholas Reiter found himself drawn to the field. “Those trials were the most interesting because they were about people (and) what they were thinking when they fired someone,” he says.
During his nearly nine years at Venable LLP, Reiter has defended employers against claims of harassment and gone after employees spilling trade secrets. He also advises clients about the best employment practices to curb the risk of new lawsuits, including on contractor classifications, accommodations for people with disabilities, and employee disciplinary actions.
