Fisher Phillips attorney Lisa McGlynn has been named to the board of directors for the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay. The Crisis Center provides a range of programs and services to ensure that no one in the community has to face a crisis alone. It focuses on bringing help, hope and healing to people facing serious life challenges or trauma.
“This is a wonderful organization that does so much for the community,” said McGlynn. “I am honored to be working with the other dedicated board members, as well as the compassionate professionals at the Crisis Center, to make a real impact on those who most need help.”

She also represents employers charged with employment discrimination before administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Florida Commission on Human Relations, the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings, and various local agencies. Additionally, she counsels clients on general employment law issues as they arise to ensure compliance with employment laws.
