Connor J. Clegg is an associate attorney in Hawks Quindel’s Madison office. Attorney Clegg practices wage and hour, disability benefits, employment, and labor law. He is proud to fight for workers’ rights in Wisconsin.
Madison Wage & Hour Attorney
Wage theft is a serious problem in today’s economy. By some estimates, workers are shortchanged $8 billion annually. If your boss refuses to pay wages you have rightfully earned, Attorney Clegg can help. He represents workers and classes of workers who are paid below the minimum wage, deprived of overtime wages, or forced to work off the clock without pay.
Madison Disability Attorney
Wages are not the only benefit workers receive. Many workers are covered by short-term and long-term disability insurance policies. All too often, insurance companies try to give workers the runaround. Attorney Clegg represents workers who have been wrongfully denied coverage or those who need an advocate from the start to secure the benefits they deserve.
Madison Employment Attorney
Securing these benefits is only possible when every worker is treated with dignity in the workplace. To that end, Attorney Clegg represents employees who have been treated unfairly based on their age, disability, gender, race, religion, or other protected status.
Madison Labor Attorney
In light of these problems, unions offer a source of power for many workers. Collective action can hold employers to account for their misdeeds. Attorney Clegg represents workers and their unions to enforce their rights under collective bargaining agreements and state and federal law.
During law school, Attorney Clegg worked at the Neighborhood Law Clinic, assisting clients in employment and rental housing disputes. He joined Hawks Quindel as a law clerk in 2019, working part-time during his second and third years of law school. He was a member of TAA and served on the senior editorial board of the Wisconsin Law Review and the executive board of the American Constitution Society’s University of Wisconsin Law School Student Chapter. The Wisconsin Law Review published his article “Closing the Door on Anti-Cohabitation Policies: Marital Status Protections For Unmarried Couples” in his final year of law school. Before joining Hawks Quindel as an associate, Attorney Clegg clerked for the Honorable Lynn S. Adelman in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
