Jonathan K. Driggs, Attorney at Law

Jonathan K. Driggs, Attorney at Law, has over twenty-four years of experience focused exclusively on the practice of employment law. He has advised and represented employers of almost every size and industry-type. In addition to his regular practice, Jonathan spends much of his time presenting a popular series of employment law-related seminars to managers, executives and HR professionals throughout the country (and as far away as Kuwait).

Jonathan graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University in 1992 and became a member of the Utah State Bar Association. Upon graduation, he spent three years working for the Anti-Discrimination and Labor Division of the Utah Labor Commission enforcing employment discrimination laws and managing a team of investigators.

Jonathan is known for his balanced, “big-picture” approach that allows him to keep his client’s business objectives in mind while creating legally compliant solutions. As a popular seminar presenter and speaker, Jonathan consistently receives the highest marks for his ability to translate “legalese” into clear, concise explanations-and for his relaxed, humor-filled presentation style.

“I have been a client of Jonathan’s for many years. He has presented his Employment Law for Managers Seminar (ELMS) to my leadership teams at every company for which I have worked.  Typically, managers get very nervous about attending any course that has the word “law” in it. They instantly think they are going to be sitting through a long, dry and boring class about everything they can’t do to avoid a lawsuit.

However, I can confidently tell my leaders that they will walk away from Jonathan’s seminar feeling empowered and knowledgeable from a hands-on perspective about things they need to know to effectively lead a team. The feedback from my managers about ELMS has always been extremely positive. I have leaders who still remember attending the training and rave about how much they learned. I highly recommend ELMS to any company that is looking for a way to help their managers lead more effectively.”

“Jonathan is great resource and an excellent instructor regarding Employment Law. Once a company has participated in one of his seminars, they wish to have him back. There is none better.”
