Erin provides clients with legal guidance for navigating employment laws.

Erin regularly advises employers on a variety of day-to-day employment and business matters. She represents clients in all manner of employment disputes in and out of the court room.

Erin also guides employers through internal and government investigations. She prepares and reviews employer policies and handbooks, required new hire notices under Minnesota and other states’ laws, employment, independent contractor and separation agreements, employee leave and reinstatement, and non-competition and confidentiality agreements. Erin and her clients craft individualized pandemic responses that focus on the client’s business, such as vaccine policies, federal and state exemptions, and remote work policies.

Erin acts as a neutral third-party investigator when businesses encounter situations beyond their expertise or with civil or criminal legal implications. She conducts privileged investigations and drafts thorough reports on which employers can rely using industry standard practices.

Prior to joining Fredrikson, Erin graduated from the University of Michigan Law School where she was Chair of the 94th Henry M. Campbell Moot Court Competition, President of the Michigan Health Law Organization, and an associate and senior editor on the Michigan Law Review. She was also an active member of the Women’s Law Student Organization, First Generation Law Students Organization and Older Wiser Law Students Organization. Additionally, Erin managed in the hospitality industry for four years where she focused on swiftly fulfilling client needs while leading a team of up to 25 individuals.
