Lawrence McGoldrick

Representing and advising management since 1983, McGoldrick has practiced in virtually all areas of labor and employment law. He has successfully litigated cases at the trial and appellate levels, and he now concentrates his practice in the areas of government investigations, legal compliance audits and counseling employers on how to handle or prevent problems in the workplace. McGoldrick has special experience in the areas of wage and hour laws, employee compensation plans, laws regulating background investigations of applicants and employees and laws addressing employer obligations toward ill, injured or disabled employees.

He has conducted audits for national, regional, and local employers to improve their compliance with wage and hour laws, especially compliance with exempt/nonexempt employee classification requirements and other hotly litigated wage-hour issues. McGoldrick has also worked on behalf of clients and persuaded U.S. Department of Labor officials in Washington to issue formal opinion letter rulings in favor of certain wage-hour practices of the clients, thus providing the clients a statutory defense against future litigation over those practices.
