As a employer member of MSEC, I have had the pleasure to work with Mark Flynn for the past few years. He is very knowledgeable of employment law and has assisted me on several occasions with the investigation of employee relations issues and conflict resolution. He knows just what questions to ask to help manage and resolve “sticky” situations. His assistance has helped my company successfully navigate these challenging employment issues. I have also attended MSEC courses and have found him to be well-spoken and an excellent presenter.
I was pleased to work with Mark Flynn as a testifying defense expert in several employment discrimination cases in which Mark addressed the legal and factual underpinnings of employer-conducted internal investigations at issue. Mark’s opinions are informed by the hundreds of investigations Mark has conducted and directed in his career. He is thus uniquely positioned to succinctly relate the legal standards for workplace investigations and their application in a given case.
Mark presented an unruffled, deliberate demeanor as well as the keen ability to defuse attempts by opposing counsel to alternately distract and bully him. Mark’s testimony reflected his thoughtful insights concerning investigations as well as his genuine concern for employers and employees.
