Caleb is an attorney in the Employment and Labor Law Practices, representing employers in litigation and advising on best-practice methods.

Caleb has experience defending a wide variety of employee claims. His primary practice includes federal discrimination claims under Title VII, 42 U.S.C. § 1981, the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the ADEA, Title VIII and the Fair Housing Act, and state discrimination claims under the PHRA and the PFEOA. In defending against these claims, Caleb has dealt with race, sex, religion, age, and disability charges. Caleb also handles claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act and Pennsylvania’s Minimum Wage Act, and Wage Payment and Collection Law.

In handling these matters for clients, Caleb is involved at all stages of litigation, from pleadings at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission to federal and state court civil claims. Outside of litigation, Caleb has settled matters through mediation and conciliation attempts. Caleb also regularly represents employers through the unemployment compensation process. His experience in Labor Law consists of providing rapid response training to clients and defending against unfair labor practice charges.

In the hospitality sector, Caleb counsels clients on crafting niche employment policies specific to the industry including tip pooling arrangements. He navigates business through multi-state and multi-ordinance compliance. He also litigates in defense of employment claims that reach court or administrative agencies.

Caleb helps continue a longtime firm tradition of former Barley Snyder summer associates that later join the firm as full-time attorneys.

At the Duquesne University School of Law, where he graduated cum laude, Caleb was a member of the school’s appellate moot court board that won the Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition. Caleb also was a mentor in the school’s Academic Excellence Program and worked in the school’s law library.

A Lancaster County native, Caleb is firmly committed to the greater Lancaster area. Growing up, he worked at Bent Creek Country Club and received the J. Wood Platt Caddie Scholarship. Prior to joining Barley Snyder, Caleb also worked as an intern with the Lancaster County Public Defender’s Office. He also operated a local landscaping business by himself for four years. 

In his time away from the office, Caleb enjoys physical exercise of any kind including running and biking. Caleb likes playing any and all recreational sports from individual sports like golf and tennis to team sports like soccer and basketball.
