George B. Randolph
George B. Randolph is a Riley Riper Hollin & Colagreco shareholder who chairs the firm’s Labor and Employment Practice Group. From his office in Exton, George’s practice focuses on litigation, employment law and labor relations for clients throughout southeastern Pennsylvania.
George represents corporations, construction companies, educational institutions, nonprofits, service providers, manufacturers, individuals and others involved in employment, construction and commercial litigation before federal and state agencies and courts, and in AAA arbitration forums. He handles the full spectrum of issues related to the employment relationship, including preventive law consulting, pre-hire practices and procedures, employment separations and reductions in force. His deep experience also includes counsel related to post-separation resolutions, including unemployment compensation, and issues related to federal and state law and regulatory compliance, including OSHA, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Title VII, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Act.
Since joining Riley Riper in 1992, George has successfully litigated scores of cases that have involved complex issues such as trade secrets, whistleblower actions, employment agreements, restrictive covenants and discrimination. His recent victories include obtaining consecutive dismissals of OSHA/SOX whistleblower complaints that had been made against a client by an ex-employee who had previously won several successful cases; obtaining a damage award in favor of a client that had been the victim of an ex-employee’s misappropriation of trade secrets; and the successful defense of a construction contractor sued for alleged FMLA violations.
George is committed to representing clients just as he would like to be represented, paying close attention to their goals, time restraints and budgets. He works diligently with clients on negotiating, drafting and enforcing contracts to protect their rights. Clients who seek to avoid future litigation value his proactive counsel on employee handbooks, company policies, independent contractor and work-sharing agreements, non-competition and other restrictive covenants.
George earned his Juris Doctor from Northwestern University School of Law and a Master of Business Administration from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Business. He did his undergraduate work at Ursinus College, earning a Bachelor of Arts, summa cum laude.
