Rebecca Springer joined Crowell & Moring in 1999 and currently serves as partner in the Labor & Employment Group. Her practice focuses on labor and employment litigation and counseling, particularly in the area of Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) compliance. Rebecca has extensive experience conducting audits of personnel practices, preparing Affirmative Action Plans, and counseling clients on affirmative action issues. She also has experience conducting statistical analyses of compensation and other personnel practices for purposes of class action litigation, OFCCP compliance audits, and employer self-audits, and frequently teams with labor economists to analyze compensation and advise clients on potential risks and proactive measures to address compensation disparities.

Rebecca has worked extensively on single-plaintiff, multi-plaintiff and class action labor and employment litigation involving allegations of race discrimination, FMLA and disability discrimination, sexual harassment, protection of trade secrets, and traditional labor law issues. She has significant experience counseling employers on reductions-in-force and restructuring. Rebecca also regularly counsels clients on the “alphabet soup” of employment-related laws including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Title VII, and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).

Rebecca has conducted numerous investigations of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation complaints. She has extensive experience conducting interviews, drafting investigation reports, and providing strategic advice to clients on the many issues that arise throughout an investigation. As a member of the firm’s Education Practice, Rebecca has significant experience investigating and providing advice on sexual assault, harassment, and discrimination claims in the education context. She is also experienced in counseling universities on Title IX compliance issues and conducting investigations of Title IX complaints.

Rebecca graduated from Duke University School of Law where she received the Duke Law Advocacy Award for excellence in oral advocacy. Prior to attending law school Rebecca worked in the White House as the assistant to the counselor to the president and then at U.S. News & World Report as the special assistant to the editor-at-large. She is a member of the Virginia and District of Columbia bars.
