Tiffany Hubbard works with clients to understand their business needs and help them with the evolving landscape of workplace legal requirements and provides programmatic counseling on how best to navigate their federal grants and contracts obligations.
Tiffany has more than 10 years’ experience counseling clients concerning workplace issues and helps clients develop practical and cost-effective solutions. Her counseling experience includes a wide range of issues from workplace safety, wage and hour, leave requirements, fair employment laws, employment agreements, and employment policies. Tiffany conducts internal investigations for clients, including sexual harassment and employee misconduct allegations.
Clients seek Tiffany’s guidance concerning OSHA compliance as well as preparing for and responding to OSHA inspections and citations. Tiffany defends clients against OSHA complaints, and has helped clients obtain favorable resolutions with OSHA. When workplace disputes necessitate litigation, Tiffany defends clients’ interests in single plaintiff and class and collective action employment litigation, arbitration, and administrative agency proceedings. Tiffany also has litigation experience helping clients protect their proprietary information, including seeking injunctive relief against former employees. Tiffany applies this same practical approach to help clients understand their regulatory obligations concerning federal grants and contracts and find solutions that meet their needs, as well as comply with human and animal research subjects regulations.
Her practical experience in this area is born from a prior career where she was responsible for the research compliance program and research subjects protection program for a large community hospital. In that role, she gained invaluable experience as a supervisor in charge of drafting and managing program policies, monitoring federal grant and contract compliance, conducting internal audits, and responding to federal agency and accreditation audits. This experience helps Tiffany provide clients with a unique vantage point for approaching these issues.
Dedicated to giving back, Tiffany has provided many hours of pro bono legal services in the area of labor and employment, helping rape crisis centers respond to subpoenas, as well as assisting a nonprofit with federal grant compliance. Tiffany is a member of the board of directors of Connecticut Food Bank and Foodshare.
