Jonathan K. Driggs, Attorney at Law
Jonathan has nearly 30 years of experience focused exclusively on the practice of employment law. He has advised and represented employers of almost every size and industry-type throughout the country on a broad range of issues, including: EEO, sexual harassment, ADA, FMLA and other leave laws, wage & hour laws (federal and state) termination decisions and other complex employee-relations issues, workplace investigations, drafting and reviewing employment agreements and policies, NLRA, IRCA and many other federal and state employment laws. 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.
Jonathan’s pro bono work includes serving as a member of the Career Service Council for Utah County Government (an appeals board for employee termination decisions). Jonathan is also a guest lecturer on employment law at the BYU Marriott School’s MBA and EMBA Programs and the University of Utah.
Please be aware that as an employer-side employment attorney, Jonathan does not represent employees.
