With a career spanning three decades, Laurie Baulig has been a litigator for the federal government, a private practitioner, in-house counsel for two business trade associations, and a teacher at a liberal arts college. She founded Baulig Law with the idea that, at its best, law is a service profession that should be transparent, accessible and affordable. The firm’s focus on employment law also reflects her philosophy that both businesses and their employees benefit when the workplace is free from discrimination, unfair wage practices, and unsafe or unhealthy conditions.
Laurie began her career as an antitrust litigator for the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, D.C. She later shifted her focus to employment law as in-house counsel for the American Trucking Associations, one of the largest business trade groups in the nation’s capital. While at ATA, she travelled across the country explaining the requirements of new laws passed by Congress – such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, Civil Rights Act of 1991, and Family and Medical Leave Act – and regulatory proposals that would have an impact on the trucking industry. This experience not only confirmed her passion for employment law, but also awakened her interest in teaching. So she left D.C. for Lancaster, PA in 2008 to serve as adjunct assistant professor at Franklin & Marshall College. From 2008-13, she taught Human Resources Management, Gender and the Law, and other courses affecting legal rights and responsibilities in the workplace.
Laurie’s interest in law and teaching are reflected throughout this site. She writes frequently on topics in her field of employment law, but also writes on other legal topics that are frequently in the news. We hope you visit often.
