ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

Sarah A. Belger, Odin, Feldman & Pittleman, P.C. / Reston

Sarah Belger focuses her practice on labor and employment law, with particular emphasis on employment-related litigation. She counsels and defends employers in claims under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), ERISA, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), USERRA, the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act, and other federal and state statutes, breach of contract claims, covenants not to compete, trade secrets claims, and tort claims, including wrongful discharge, defamation, conspiracy, and tortious interference claims.   She also handles ERISA litigation involving claims for employee benefits, breach of fiduciary duty, multi-employer plans, and withdrawal liability.

Additionally, Ms. Belger advises management on issues such as employment contracts, employee handbooks, and employee discipline. She also provides training to clients on many topics, including Title VII, ADA, FMLA, management considerations in reductions in workforce, documentation techniques, and best practices for discipline. In addition to her labor and employment practice, she has experience in procurement matters involving multiple Virginia political subdivisions.

Dana L. Rust, McGuireWoods / Richmond

Dana Rust is an experienced litigator with McGuireWoods.  His practice includes the employment discrimination area, where he has handled hundreds of discrimination cases and charges of discrimination in state and federal courts and administrative agencies throughout the country. He has tried verdict age discrimination, sex discrimination, race discrimination, Equal Pay Act, Family Medical Leave Act, workplace defamation and disability discrimination cases. He has litigated Title VII class actions in federal court and before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Mr. Rust has also led internal investigations involving claims of discrimination brought by C-Suite executives. He has litigated claims for breach of severance, “change in control” and other executive employment agreements. He has defended employers charged with violating “top hat” ERISA plans, which are reserved for select, highly-compensated executives.  While the bulk of Dana’s work has been on behalf of employers, Dana also has negotiated severance and exit packages for high level executives.

Additionally, Mr. Rust’s practice includes the representation of unionized employers, defending employers in both pension and welfare benefit litigation, representing employers as both plaintiffs and defendants in claims involving breach of noncompete agreements, theft of trade secrets and employee raiding, and representing employers before the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration and state OSHA agencies.
