Morgan, Heather

Heather Morgan is the Global Chair of the Paul Hastings Workforce Data and Technology practice, a partner in the Employment Law department, and is based in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Ms. Morgan represents employers in all aspects of employment law, with an emphasis on defending “high stakes” class actions and other complex litigation. She devotes a significant portion of her practice to helping employers develop or revamp personnel policies, build "best practices," and ensure compliance with federal and state laws and regulations impacting recruitment, hiring, promotion, compensation, performance evaluation, termination, affirmative action compliance, voluntary diversity programs, succession planning, and other personnel practices.

In particular, she has significant experience partnering with employers who seek to design improved and compliant personnel processes through a transition to new or upgraded workforce-related software and HR technologies, including advising on steps to ensure compliance with multi-jurisdiction privacy, e-signature and data retention requirements. Ms. Morgan’s practice also includes a special focus on the development and analysis of statistics used in case defense, to conduct preventative, privileged diagnostic reviews of employers’ personnel practices, and to develop diversity metrics.
