Mr. Abbott has spent the majority of his legal career exclusively representing employers in all facets of labor and employment law. Prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Abbott worked as a human resources professional which allowed him to learn firsthand the issues which confront employers on a daily basis with respect to their employees. That experience has been enormously helpful in his practice to assist clients in achieving their human resources objectives in compliance with applicable laws.
Scott?s current practice involves advising employers on a multitude of employment issues, ranging from hiring criteria to discipline and discharge decisions. He also works with employers on preventive strategies including employee training and the development of internal policies and procedures. Because of the rise of employment-related litigation in recent years, a considerable portion of Scott?s practice also involves defending employers against claims of discrimination and other unlawful treatment before the state and federal courts and administrative agencies such as the Nevada Equal Rights Commission and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Scott has also been a frequent speaker and author on employment law topics. His publications include: “A Psycholegal Perspective: The Lack of Neuropsychological Examination Following Significant Brain Trauma Can Be Costly,” Advances in Medical Psychotherapy and Psychodiagnosis, Vol. 11 (2002-2003); “The Benefits and Pitfalls of Employee Handbooks” Communique, July 1999; “Temps, Contractors and Telecommuters: It?s Time to Face Up to the Legal Risks,” Council on Education in Management Personnel Law Update (1996); “Happy Birthday, You?re Fired!” Council on Education in Management Personnel Law Update (1995); “How Much Can You Say at Work,” ABA Human Rights, Vol. 22, No. 2, Spring 1995; “Safe Handling of the Volatile Employee,” Council on Education in Management Personnel Law Update (1994); “To Produce or Not to Produce: The Dilemma Presented by the Production of Employment Records,” Nevada Labor Letter (Vol. II, No. 4, April 1994); “The New Legal Challenge to Employee Participation,” 45 Labor Law Journal 41 (1994); and “Focus on Age Discrimination: Reducing the High Risk Stakes,” 1 Nevada Lawyer 14 (1993).
Scott is a member of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the American Bar Association, the Defense Research Institute, and the Clark County Bar Association. Scott has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America since 2005. In addition, he is admitted to practice as an attorney in both Nevada and Massachusetts. Having been raised in the Boston area, Scott shook off the last snowflakes by moving to sunny Nevada in 1992, and has never looked back.
