      Labor & Employment Economic Consultant

      Charlotte, NC

      $85,000 - $95,000


      A global economic consulting firm is seeking a Consultant to join its Labor and Employment Practice in Charlotte.


      The Labor and Employment Practice typically engages in matters related to Wage and Hour or Discrimination litigation as well as other employment-related business consulting. The firm regularly provides analysis and support related to class action minimum wage/overtime claims, meal and rest break claims, employee misclassification claims, and discrimination matters related to hiring, pay, promotion, and/or wrongful termination. The firm conducts work at all stages of the litigation process. Clients rely on on the firm to provide complex exposure models, expert reports, preparation for depositions, rebuttals to the work of other experts, and expert testimony at deposition or trial. Services are also retained for data collection efforts in the form of surveys, video content analysis, and on-site observational studies.


      The firm is looking for a Consultant to join the team in the summer of 2024! The Consultant position is the entry-level position and no prior work experience is required to apply. Consultants assist with the managing of documents and data received from clients. This includes converting raw data into analytical files, verifying data integrity, running statistical analyses, creating charts and tables, and finalizing documents and data for production. In some cases when the appropriate data is not available, Consultants may be required to assist in collecting data via observation studies or in-person surveys at client locations.


      Consultants typically play a major part in forming and testing hypotheses when analyzing data, and are expected to be (or become) proficient programmers with a trained eye for details. While Consultants will regularly process data and perform empirical work, they will also be expected to develop a sense of the big picture for each case and to learn how to shape findings into a coherent story supported by prevailing economic theories and statistical methods.


      The ideal candidate is highly motivated and intellectually curious, with a positive attitude and some exposure to basic statistical software or computer programming languages. The litigation environment can be unpredictable, so the Consultant should be able to handle multiple requests and accommodate tight deadlines confidently. For the right candidate, the position will be as rewarding as it is demanding. Consultants will quickly learn that they have the support of a team of intelligent and highly motivated individuals who have a genuine interest in their professional development and advancement to higher positions. We aren’t just seeking to hire a Consultant, we’re seeking to hire a future leader and expert in the field.
