He was the lead associate attorney before the U.S. Supreme Court in the 1999 case of Albertsons v. Kirkingburg, a decision interpreting the Americans with Disabilities Act in favor of employers. Besides disability discrimination matters, Rich commonly appears in court defending claims of sexual harassment, gender discrimination, workers compensation discrimination, public accommodation, race discrimination, retaliation, wage and hour violations, and family and medical leave discrimination. He also regularly represents employers in labor grievance arbitrations. Rich has spoken at many regional and national employment law seminars and he has written numerous articles on employment law topics that have been published in regional and national publications.
