About Jennifer's Practice
Jennifer S. Frank joined the firm of Lynn, Jackson, Schultz & Lebrun in June 2015, bringing almost 18 years of experience in advising clients on a variety of employment, labor, and benefit issues.
Frank worked most recently as a Senior Associate General Counsel for Allina Health, a Minnesota-based healthcare system consisting of more than 26,000 employees, 90+ clinics, 13 hospitals, 16 pharmacies, and other specialty medical services. For the last almost eight years, she was the lead employment law attorney in the legal and risk services department.
At Allina Health, Frank managed employment-related litigation handled by outside counsel, which included cases involving claims of disability, age, and sex discrimination. Frank focused her practice on advising human resources and company leaders on issues involving: discrimination, disability and ADA; FMLA; wage and hour; compliance; patient privacy; physician and non-compete; hiring/firing/discipline; and various immigration matters. Her legal responsibilities were extensive, but Frank remained diligent in preparing and overseeing administrative charges and representing clients at agency interviews and conciliation settlement conferences.
Frank also worked closely with Allina Health’s human resources division to assist with drafting and revising employment policies and procedures, and advising on reduction-in-force matters, including preparing severance and separation agreements. Frank provided regular training for the company on discrimination, disability, and FMLA topics.
She was previously a partner with Lindquist & Vennum P.L.L.P. of Minneapolis, where she focused the majority of her practice on employment advice and counsel and the prevention of litigation. She was a member of the firm’s Employment and Executive Compensation practice group.
In 1997, she graduated magna cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her background includes working for companies in a variety of human resources and benefits positions in Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. prior to law school.
