August 30, 2016
The South Carolina Supreme Court has certified Jennifer Cluverius as a Specialist in Employment and Labor Law. Cluverius, a member (partner) in the Greenville office, becomes the sixth Employment and Labor Law certified specialist who practices with Nexsen Pruet.
“Jennie’s commitment to building strong relationships with clients is evident,” said David Dubberly, the firm’s Employment & Labor Law chair. “We see new challenges emerging for businesses on a regular basis and she is an asset as business leaders work to navigate the changing landscape.”
In her practice, Cluverius provides daily counsel to employers, including federal contractors, in employment, labor and other business matters. She represents employers in federal and state court litigation, and before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the South Carolina Human Affairs Commission, and the Department of Employment and Workforce.
In addition, Cluverius regularly works with management clients on disputes involving Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, and the National Labor Relations Act, as well as claims such as breach of contract, wrongful termination, unlawful disclosure of trade secrets, and workers’ compensation retaliation.
Cluverius earned her undergraduate degree, summa cum laude, from Clemson University’s Calhoun Honors College. She is a cum laude graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law, where she received her J.D. in 2006. Outside the office she volunteers with various community and charitable organizations including Happy Wheels, Inc., a nonprofit that provides free toys and books to sick children in hospitals across the state, for which she currently serves as the Board President.
