Associate

Stephen R. Gee is an associate with the Labor & Employment Practice Group in Clark Hill’s Grand Rapids office. Stephen counsels employers on federal, state, and local labor and employment law compliance, as well as labor and employment agreement implementation, interpretation, and compliance. Stephen also represents clients in collective bargaining negotiations, grievance and interest arbitrations, and in discrimination and retaliation matters before federal and state administrative agencies. 

Prior to joining Clark Hill, Stephen gained a wide range of labor and employment law experience working at management-side firms in Illinois. Stephen has worked on wage and hour class action lawsuits and has also drafted, reviewed, and revised employee handbooks and personnel manuals so that they reflect best practices and compliance with current federal, state, and local laws and address trends in human resource management and employment law. Additionally, he co-authored the article "Employee Theft: Practical and Legal Concerns" that was published in Bloomberg BNA’s Human Resources Report (Vol. 33, No. 9) on March 9, 2015.

Stephen served on the Chicago-Kent Law Review Executive Board and was a Student Editor on the Employee Rights & Employment Policy Journal. Stephen's law review note, "The 'Moral Hazards' of Title VII's Religious Accommodation Doctrine," was published in Volume 89 of the Chicago-Kent Law Review.
