Elizabeth Darby Rehm

Beth Darby Rehm is a native of Mobile, Alabama and has devoted the past 27 years of her career exclusively to representing management in labor and employment law. Throughout her career, she has represented employers in the healthcare, aeronautical, dairy, manufacturing and service sectors, as well as municipalities.

Beth values working with clients taking a “hands on” approach to resolving labor and employment issues before they reach administrative agencies or the court system. She enjoys counseling and training employers in all aspects of labor and employment law to help avoid claims arising from day-to-day employment decisions, as well as significant decisions such as reductions in force. As part of her practice, Beth regularly drafts employment policies and procedures, employment applications, background check disclosure and consent agreements, employee handbooks, and employment contracts (non-compete agreements and trade secret agreements).

She additionally regularly conducts training for clients on a variety of labor and employment issues. Beth works with clients to create a customized training program which relates to each individual client’s industry and employees to allow for an interactive experience.

In addition to employment law, Beth also has experience with “traditional” labor law, including representing employers in all aspects of management-union relations, including: negotiations, union representation and decertification election campaigns; arbitration of grievances; unfair labor practice claims; and preparation of strike contingency plans.

However, Beth understands that administrative charges and lawsuits cannot always be avoided, and actively defends employers both in state and federal court and before administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor, OSHA, the National Labor Relations Board and various state agencies across the United States.

Beth has also successfully defended clients in Federal Court under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act relating to the accessibility of their premises to the public.  Beth works with owners of businesses to ensure they understand the requirements of Title III of the ADA and come into compliance to avoid liability.
