In this new episode of “Justice At Work”, Partner Kathy Harrington Sullivan is joined by Adian Miller to discuss the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) during the Covid-19 pandemic. The ADA became law in 1990 and is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.
Adian Miller is an associate at Barrett & Farahany where her practice is focused on fighting for employees who have been denied their hard-earned wages or had their rights violated under federal law. She represents employees who have been wronged under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). She joined the firm in 2020 and works tirelessly to represent her clients’ interests and ensure that they are always fully informed. No matter the case, Adian is never afraid to fight the good fight.
Adian strongly believes in the dignity of labor and believes the workplace should be safe and free of fear, intimidation, threats, or discrimination. Adian has a broad range of prior legal experience, having worked for the U.S. government, various labor unions, nonprofits, a small plaintiffs’ firm, and a large defense firm.
As a law student in Washington, D.C., Adian clerked for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the AFL-CIO, the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). She also gained experience in lobbying and legislative analysis. Her experience in the development of the law helps inform her practice.
Adian earned her law degree from American University Washington College of Law and has degrees from American University School of International Service and Rollins College.
