Fisher Phillips, one of the country’s preeminent labor and employment law firms representing employers, announces the addition of Sharon Wey as Of Counsel in the firm’s Tampa office. Wey joins from the law offices of Miller Tack & Madson, where she practiced with Michael Miller and Timothy Tack, two powerhouse attorneys in the Professional Employer Organization (PEO) industry who joined Fisher Phillips in 2020.
During her distinguished career, Wey has counseled clients in the PEO industry, the health care industry, and clients in a myriad of other industries on employment law issues. Additionally, she helps implement preventive training programs and best practices for workplace policies. Wey will continue to represent employers across the state in labor and employment litigation matters involving Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Florida Civil Rights Act. She leverages her experience as a former human resources manager and Certified Professional in Human Resources to help employers utilize practical workplace solutions and trainings related to harassment, employee leaves and accommodations. Wey earned her J.D. from Stetson University College of Law and her B.A. from the University of South Florida.
“The PEO industry is one of the largest industry sectors in which Fisher Phillips works,” said John Polson, a member of Fisher Phillips’ Management Committee and a leader in the firm’s PEO practice group. “Our PEO clients rely on our many years of experience representing PEOs and our deep industry experience to navigate the challenges of operating a PEO in a constantly changing legal environment. Sharon’s unique skill set complements the services that Mike and Tim provide our PEO clients in conjunction with our PEO team across the country. Her unique understanding of the complex issues confronting this industry will be a tremendous asset.”
Fisher Phillips’ PEO practice includes attorneys across the country who represent PEOs in litigation, licensing, CPEO certification, tax, benefits, insurance, immigration, start-up consultation, mergers and acquisitions, contracts, compliance, and government relations.
