Labor and Employment Attorney - Christian & Small

David is a partner in the law firm of Christian & Small. He has practiced exclusively in the labor and employment arena since graduating from Vanderbilt School of law in 1987. He regularly defends businesses in claims under the many federal and state employment laws, not only for Alabama but also for states in the southeast and southwest. With the growth of wage and hour litigation, David has spent a large part of his practice defending individual and collective actions under the FLSA. David authors the Christian & Small Employment Law Update, through which he advises clients regarding new developments in labor and employment law.  David is with us today because in addition to defending management companies, he provides day-to-day risk management advice as employment issues arise, and, more importantly for today, has been keeping up to date on the many issues being faced by management companies from the new COVID-19 laws being enacted.
