John Ashby is an experienced employment lawyer, and he is chair of Hawley Troxell’s Employment Law Practice Group. John represents employers in all areas of employment law, including wrongful discharge, discrimination and fair labor standard practice claims. He also advises employers on compliance with state and federal employment laws and conducts management training on a variety of employment law topics. John believes that good training and a proactive approach can prevent most employment law claims. However, when employees do raise claims, John represents employers in court or in proceedings before the Idaho Human Rights Commission, the EEOC and the Department of Labor.
