Carlton Fields is pleased to announce the launch of Core Triangle Consulting LLC, a Washington, DC-based human resources risk management consultancy. Core Triangle’s mission is to help organizations of all sizes — from every sector and industry — to minimize workplace risk and develop and advance world-class programs and strategies that attract, retain, and support a talented, diverse, and productive workforce.

The consultancy serves a broad range of clients including public and private for-profit companies, nonprofit associations, colleges and universities, independent secondary schools, governmental and quasi-governmental entities, and federal government supply and service and construction contractors. 

Core Triangle’s leadership team includes Carlton Fields attorneys Cathleen Bell Bremmer, Jim Sconzo, and Rae Vann.

“Core Triangle’s deep understanding of employment law and policy sets us apart,” said Sconzo, Core Triangle’s president and a ‘go-to’ L&E attorney for many of the most recognized education institutions and corporations. “We are able to tap into our practical knowledge and expertise under an innovative and flexible model designed to deliver speedy, high-quality, and cost-effective results.”

The consultancy’s offerings include investigations of workplace misconduct; equal employment opportunity (EEO) compliance coaching and training, both for remedial and proactive purposes; settlement monitoring for class actions, collective actions, and mass actions relating to employment matters, administrative audit, investigation, and enforcement support; and civil litigation support.

“The best-run companies understand the importance of employee relations, communications, and compliance,” said Vann, Core Triangle’s vice president and former general counsel for the Center for Workplace Compliance, the preeminent national employer association formerly known as the Equal Employment Advisory Council. “Proactive policies and strategies are key for employers of any size to avoid risk and promote a positive and productive work environment.”

Added Bremmer, Core Triangle’s senior consultant: “While employers are navigating the unprecedented challenges related to COVID-19, they are also striving to create more diverse and inclusive workplaces. Core Triangle provides human resources solutions designed to meet its clients’ pressing needs.”
