Mike lectures on employment topics for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, corporations and associations. He is active in the community serving on non-profit boards over the last several years.

Sarah C. Yeager

Twenty-five years of experience in employment and labor law and litigation has equipped Sarah with a wide range of knowledge and abilities to effectively advise both her public and private-sector clients in local, state and federal courts in addition to administrative matters before the EEOC, PHRC, PLRB, and NLRB. She routinely handles litigation in the federal district courts in both the Eastern and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania. She has litigated commercial disputes, licensing issues, regulatory concerns and employment-related matters. She is also certified as an appointed mediator in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

She serves as both a litigator and counselor, advising clients in matters such as:

  • Labor negotiations, arbitration and other union disputes
  • Employment discrimination and harassment litigation
  • Non-compete and other restrictive covenant litigation
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) compliance and litigation
  • Wage and hour compliance and litigation

Before moving into private practice, Sarah worked as an attorney in the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Litigation Division for more than 13 years. She also worked as the attorney general’s Right-to-Know Law Appeals Officer, giving her a deep-seeded knowledge of the law that allows her to advise her public and private-sector clients on Right-to-Know issues.

Her community service is a string of successes and honors throughout central Pennsylvania. In 2017 she was named a “Woman of Influence” by the Central Penn Business Journal and in 2016 her law school alma mater Widener University Commonwealth Law School honored her with its Excellence in Public Service Award. The Pennsylvania Bar Association in 2014 awarded her the Lynette Norton Award for excellence in litigation and for mentoring female attorneys.
