Biography

Caroline is an Associate in Wiggin and Dana's Labor, Employment and Benefits Department and is a member of the firm's Diversity Committee.

Caroline's practice encompasses federal and state court litigation and the arbitration and mediation of employment discrimination claims, wrongful discharge claims, wage and hour claims, disputes over the enforcement of covenants not to compete, and other employment-related disagreements. Caroline also represents employers in cases involving claims of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, before the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. A significant portion of her work focuses on traditional labor relations, which includes union organizing drives, proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board, grievance and arbitration proceedings, and labor contract negotiations. In addition, Caroline advises employers on a broad range of personnel-related matters, such as disciplinary issues, termination and separation issues, reasonable accommodations, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and personnel policies and practices.

Caroline earned her J.D. with honors from the University of Connecticut School of Law, where she served as a Notes and Comments Editor for the Connecticut Law Review. She received her B.A. in Political Science and Communication from Boston College.

Caroline clerked for the Honorable F. Herbert Gruendel in the Connecticut Appellate Court in Hartford.
