Amy Z. Snyder

Chair, Women's Initiative at Eckert


Amy Snyder works with public and private employers on a wide range of traditional labor and employment law matters. She represents clients in charges before federal, state, and local administrative agencies and federal and state court litigation. She also represents employers in collective bargaining negotiations and grievance arbitrations.

Amy frequently provides counsel to clients on personnel actions. Because of her knowledge of federal and state leave laws and the interactive process under the Americans with Disabilities Act, employers often seek her advice on issues related to leaves of absence and accommodating employees with disabilities. She also advises clients on emerging developments and compliance with employment laws such as the Family and Medical Leave Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the National Labor Relations Act. She works closely with business leaders and Human Resource professionals to develop and implement employment policies and training tailored to their workplace needs.

Prior to re-joining private practice, Amy served as manager of labor and employee relations for a large publicly traded corporation that serves as a national defense contractor. Earlier in her legal career, she served as a law clerk to the Honorable Edwin M. Kosik of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
