Jones was appointed to the WFSDallas board earlier this year, and his one-year term as board treasurer starts Jan. 1.

Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas is one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the city, investing more than $200 million per year to establish the workforce system for the Greater Dallas area. A quasi-governmental nonprofit, WFSDallas’ mission is to provide competitive solutions for area employers and for people through quality jobs.

Polsinelli said in a statement that Jones is a leading choice for bet-the-business cases and investigations regionally, nationally, and globally.

Jones, who advises and defends employers, has led more than 100 high-profile investigations on behalf of Fortune 500 companies, public, and private institutions. Jones also provides day-to-day advice to human resources professionals on hiring, training, pay, discipline, and termination, with complex C-suite misconduct as an area of focus, the firm said.

He has led the national class action defense of wage-and-hour cases and has aggressively protected business interests from unfair competition, Polsinelli said. Jones’ practice is cross-border and seamlessly encompasses global workplace issues, the firm said.

Jones also serves on the board of directors of Kumiya International, a nonprofit organization focused on human rights advocacy through documentary filmmaking.
