Alex Maultsby is a partner and member of the firm's Labor and Employment Group, providing employment counseling and advising to clients across all of the firm’s industry groups. In addition to state and federal court litigation in North Carolina, and in association with local counsel, Alex has handled cases in South Carolina, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Georgia, Connecticut, and California courts involving a wide range of liability issues.
In his role as a counselor, Alex helps clients make management decisions with company-wide impact, as well as resolve complaints and issues affecting individual employees. He regularly advises clients on, among other things, how to comply with regulations, implement effective internal policies and procedures, address internal and external complaints, manage contentious personnel issues, and minimize litigation risks associated with difficult personnel decisions. Clients also engage Alex to draft and litigate non-disclosure, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, as those contractual arrangements become a key business tool for minimizing loss when employees depart.
In addition, Alex has experience representing clients with unionized workforces, having handled grievances alleging the breach of collective bargaining agreements, arbitrated disputes over union representation, defended and prosecuted charges before the National Labor Relations Board, been involved in strike negotiations and assisted in Union avoidance campaigns.
Alex is active in a number of civic and community activities. He served a two-year term as Chair of the Board of Communities in Schools of Greater Greensboro, worked on the Board of The Barnabas Network, serves on the Board of Goodwill Industries of Central Carolina, and counsels numerous non-profit organizations. In addition, Alex has served on numerous committees of the North Carolina Bar Association, including as a member of the Labor and Employment Section Council.
