Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 10, 2006
Talent Technology Corporation (TTC), providers of award-winning recruitment, quality of hire, and other human capital software solutions, today announced the addition of Camille A. Olson to its Advisory Board. Ms. Olson is a partner of Seyfarth Shaw LLP. With more than 650 attorneys, Seyfarth Shaw is one of North America’s largest labor and employment law firms. Ms. Olson is a member of the firm’s Labor and Employment Law Steering Committee, and is Chair of its Employment Law Committee.
"Like our customers, we know that every step an employer takes in sourcing, screening, hiring, and on-boarding employees carries legal obligations and risk – our solutions need to respond," said Dr. David Jones, Chairman of TTC. "While our company works hard to stay abreast in the ever-changing world of legal compliance, someone like Camille adds tremendously to our comfort that we know, and are doing, the right thing," Jones continued.
"I look forward to working actively with TTC," said Ms. Olson. "Already, we are developing an audit tool that I believe will break new ground in the way employers use both technology and people to accomplish their recruitment and hiring objectives," she added. "We all know it boils down to finding the best total solution, while identifying and minimizing any potential legal risks along the way. That’s where I think I can contribute the most at TTC," Ms. Olson concluded.
Camille Olson’s 20 years of practice have spanned all areas of labor and employment law. Most recently, she was lead defense trial counsel in one of the largest sexual harassment cases ever brought by the United States government against a private employer. She has litigated discrimination cases through both successful summary judgment motions and favorable jury verdicts in the context of EEOC pattern and practice cases, as well as individual matters.
Throughout the last ten years Ms. Olson has also assisted state lobbying efforts and members of Congress and individuals testifying before Congressional Committees in connection with pending legislation. Recently, Ms. Olson provided testimony to both the House Banking Committee on the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and to the EEOC on issues relating to the restructuring of the Agency. She also worked closely with employer associations in connection with various issues relating to the OFCCP’s, EEOC’s, and U.S. Department of Labor’s enforcement policies and their effect on employers.
Ms. Olson has published numerous articles and book chapters on various labor issues. She publishes a column entitled "Ask Seyfarth" that answers a wide range of employment-related questions in The Inlander. Recently, she has also been quoted on labor and employment issues in publications such as: The Chicago Tribune, Crains Chicago Business, the Wall Street Journal, Presstime, Editor & Publisher, HR Magazine and HR Wire. She has recently been described as "a media law whiz" in the San Francisco Daily Journal.
Ms. Olson joins current and former TTC Advisory Board members who include Harold Poling, former Chairman and CEO of Ford Motor Company; Deborah Smith, former senior human resources executive with Merck & Company, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, and Coty; Peter Ciceri, former President of Compaq Canada, and Dr. Leaetta Hough, co-founder of Personnel Decisions Research Institute (PDRI) and Past-President of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).
