Douglas E. Duckett, Esq.

Attorney and Trainer in Human Resources and Labor Management

Training and Legal Services in Labor and Employment Law, Human Resources, and Labor Relations

I serve as an attorney and trainer in human resources and labor relations for both public- and private-sector employers based on three decades of experience.

My teaching and training focuses on issues such as:

  • Preventing sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination and inappropriate behavior.
  • Correcting employee performance (from coaching to termination) in a manner that is defensible under civil service and union contract procedures.
  • Dealing with problem and toxic employees.
  • Managing public-sector agencies in a unionized environment.
  • Conducting effective performance evaluations.
  • How employee free expression and social media intersect with the First Amendment.
  • How to conduct internal investigations of employment-related issues. 
  • In addition, I have served as a hearing officer in disciplinary matters and as an expert witness in cases involving human resources and labor relations issues.

I can also offer legal consultation or customized training on a wide range of other human resources and labor relations issues.

My rates are reasonable, and I enjoy a national reputation for excellence in this field.  I am available to travel throughout Ohio and the United States, and have offered training, legal services, or expert witness testimony in more than 20 states.

Contact me to discuss what I can do for you and your organization.
