Harry D. Jones, a Dallas-based shareholder at Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli and member of the firm’s Labor and Employment Department, has been elected treasurer on the board of directors for Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas.
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.
