Taft attorneys Carolyn Davis and Devin Spencer authored the article "Is a 'Long-Term Leave of Absence' a Reasonable Accommodation?" which was published in the winter edition of the ABA Commercial & Business Litigation newsletter. In the article, they discuss how the growing disagreement between the EEOC and the courts creates uncertainty.

She has amassed a successful track record helping companies in the healthcare, hospitality and education industries troubleshoot employee crises and conduct thorough human resource investigations. Her passion for employer-side legal issues and seasoned investigative instincts have helped make her an invaluable asset for companies needing litigation or negotiation assistance.
