Hardwick Joins Lane Powell’s Labor and Employment Practice Group
Krista N. Hardwick has joined Lane Powell as a Shareholder in the Firm’s Labor and Employment Practice Group.
Hardwick represents and advises employers and executives on a wide range of traditional labor and employment matters including unfair labor practice charges, collective bargaining, union organizing campaigns, grievance arbitrations, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, wrongful discharge, and wage and hour claims. For over a decade, Krista has assisted clients with employment-related documents such as handbooks, contracts, non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements, and training supervisors and human resources professionals on employment and labor law compliance. Human resources professionals and managers turn to Hardwick for strategic counsel on policy implementation and interpretation, operational strategy, pay practices, layoffs, disciplinary action and decisions.
Prior to joining Lane Powell, Hardwick served as in-house labor and employment counsel for Providence Health & Services, where she gained significant experience within the long-term care industry — an area she focuses her practice in as well.
Hardwick received her J.D., magna cum laude, from Willamette University College of Law and her B.A., cum laude, in Criminal Justice from University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She is admitted to practice in the states of Washington, Oregon and Nevada.
