Nina Pirrotti Featured on an Episode of “From Lawyer to Employer” to Discuss Employment Law Trends

Feb 9 2024

Garrison Law Partner Nina Pirrotti was recently featured on an episode of “From Lawyer to Employer,” a Shipman podcast. Here, she joined host Daniel Schwartz to discuss recent developments in employment law, dissecting the current state of non-disclosure agreements, non-competes, and offering a glimpse into the potential hot topics of 2024, including the ever-evolving realm of Artificial Intelligence.

When it comes to the ongoing discussion surrounding a potential ban on non-compete agreements, Nina states, “Over the years, [the state of Connecticut is] among the handful that come to the top and look at Equal Pay Act laws and make sure that employees are being treated fairly. I expect that we will be part of this movement that is going toward banning non-competes in their entirety, or at least when it is involuntary termination on the part of the employee. […] The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) estimated that a prohibition on non-competes would actually increase wages by 300 billion annually and expand career opportunities for over 30 million Americans. It’s hard to argue with those kind of statistics, Dan.”

As for artificial intelligence (AI), Nina discussed an act “concerning artificial intelligence, automated decision making, and personal data privacy, that essentially is proposing to establish an office of artificial intelligence in Connecticut […] it’s going to establish a task force [that will] study artificial intelligence and develop an artificial intelligence bill of rights.”

    Client Experiences

    During a very difficult employment situation, I was referred to Joe Garrison. Recognizing the volatile and time sensitive nature of my employment situation, Mr. Garrison met with me immediately (on the weekend no less). He listened to the details of my case, was able to think through possible creative solutions to offer the employer, and was responsive to my myriad of questions. He understood my concerns about litigation versus settlement, and he worked to find the best resolution possible. I am grateful to have had his support at a very difficult time. —J.C., New Haven, CT

    You will never meet a more knowledgeable and compassionate professional than Steve Fitzgerald. My employment situation was very complex, and Attorney Fitzgerald kept me focused while remaining extremely adept and “thinking on his feet.” Should the need present itself again, I would never seek anyone else’s counsel regarding employment issues. I cannot recommend him highly enough. — J.R., New Haven, CT

    Nina Pirrotti provided outstanding legal advice and was trustworthy, dependable, and responsive. From the start, I was confident that her knowledge and experience would obtain favorable results. On a more personal note, I enjoyed working with her and her staff and felt I was included in every part of the process. The dedication, concern, and interest in me as a client was greatly appreciated, and Nina has earned my highest recommendation. — J.H., Monroe, CT

    I recently found myself in need of a lawyer in handling a dispute with my former employer. I was fortunate to retain Josh Goodbaum as my legal counsel. His legal skills knowledge and professionalism shone through in every step of the process resulting in a very positive result. I highly recommend Josh if you find yourself in need of legal counsel. — S.R., Guilford, CT

    When I go to a lawyer for advice, I am usually anxious, particularly the first meeting. Amanda DeMatteis was clear in describing my options and immediately set me at ease. Realistic assessment is important, and Amanda was clear as to how to set up the case and the direction she felt we should go. I had total confidence in her abilities and knew I was being well represented against a large corporation. More importantly, we were successful! —N.M., Haddam, CT
