    Presenter Information:

    Carol Barnett’s proven ability in negotiating the ever-changing landscape of employment law helps clients save time and money. Carol’s background in human resources for a Fortune 500 company prior to attending law school, as well as substantial trial experience make her uniquely qualified to advise clients and litigate on their behalf.

    Carol’s background and skills are recognized by Chambers USA, where she was ranked as one of America’s leading lawyers in labor and employment for the Kansas City and surrounding area in 2013. She is also a prior recipient of recognition by Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers. She is most proud, however, of the relationships she has established with clients and the trust they place in her to provide timely and accurate legal advice, as well as trial work tailored to their needs.

    Carol was a law clerk to an Illinois State Supreme Court Justice upon graduation from the University of Illinois Law School in 1983 and has served as a member of the University of Illinois Law Review and other legal publications; she has received significant academic honors. She enjoys applying these skills to achieve optimal results for clients, such as grants of summary judgment.

    Carol’s areas of focus include ADA, FMLA, Title VII, Missouri Human Rights Act, retaliatory discharge, wage and hour issues, and hostile work environment, including both state and federal court litigation, as well as agency charges.
