Date   Nov 12, 2014

FordHarrison LLP, a national labor and employment law firm, is pleased to announce that Bennet Alsher, a partner in the firm's Atlanta office, was elected on November 8 to the National Commission of the Anti-Defamation League at the ADL's annual meeting in Los Angeles. Bennet has been a member of the ADL's Southeast Region Board of Directors since 1993.

The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 "to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all." Now the nation's premier civil rights/human relations agency, ADL fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all.

"I've always been proud to work with the Anti-Defamation League, and I'm extremely honored to serve on the National Commission," said Bennet. "I hope to aid the ADL in continuing to execute its mission of fighting not only anti-Semitism but also other forms of bigotry, bullying, and hate."

Bennet has concentrated on practicing labor and employment law, representing management exclusively since 1979. He is experienced in federal and state court litigation in the areas of wrongful discharge, employment discrimination, wage and hour litigation, and employment torts. He also has represented companies in matters before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Georgia Department of Labor, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, and various state and local fair employment practice agencies. Bennet frequently provides advice and counsel to companies regarding a variety of general labor and employment matters, including drafting separation agreements, conducting internal investigations, responding to employee complaints such as sexual harassment, handling employee discipline and discharge matters, and maintaining positive employee relations.
