Stefanie Moll litigates employment disputes on behalf of employers in US federal and state courts and in arbitration. She represents management in wage and hour, retaliation, noncompetition, sexual harassment, and employment discrimination disputes. Her experience covers companies that provide oil and gas services, maritime services, retail, staffing, and healthcare, in addition to financial and electric services. Stefanie is the Managing Partner of Morgan Lewis’s Houston office and the labor and employment practice leader for the office.
Stefanie’s litigation experience with employers includes Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) collective actions that involve improper calculation of the regular rate of pay, misclassification, and off-the-clock allegations; Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) denial of benefits; and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), and state and federal law wrongful termination claims. She also frequently handles US Department of Labor audits for oilfield services providers and other clients involving classification issues and payments of day rates, per diems, and client, safety, and other bonuses.
In her preventative practice, Stefanie advises clients on reduction-in-force (RIF) planning, policy development, noncompetition matters, and employee discipline issues. She frequently speaks and provides training on topics such as FLSA exemptions, wage and hour trends in the oil and gas industry, workplace investigations, harassment, hiring and firing guidelines, best employment practices, and case law updates.
