In September, we welcomed new board member, Carolyn Sullivan. Carolyn is an associate at Varnum LLP. She obtained her J.D. from Michigan State University College of Law. Now, as an experienced labor and employment attorney, her practice focuses on compliance with federal and state labor and employment laws and other workplace matters.
She provides counsel on a wide range of matters including effective employee handbooks and policies, discrimination, ADA compliance, sexual harassment, MIOSHA, and wage-hour issues. She litigates and defends employers in federal and state courts, as well as on administrative charges, including unemployment and EEOC matters. She also has experience counseling on employee benefit plans.
Carolyn became involved with Habitat by volunteering when she was in college. She looks forward to serving on our Board of Directors because, she says, “I want to be part of an organization that has helped hundreds of people and families in the Kent County community, where I grew up and live now.”
