Professional Experience

  • Jordon specializes in employment, business, and commercial law—in both litigation and transactional matters. She represents employers and employees in complex legal disputes arising from discrimination, wage and hour, whistleblower, reprisal, disability, and sexual harassment claims.
  • Jordon also advises a variety of employers, from nationwide companies to local businesses and non-profits. She works with employers to develop risk management strategies and provide innovative solutions; interpret federal and state employment laws, regulatory compliance, and legislative developments; negotiate employment and separation agreements; develop employment policies and handbooks; and conduct internal workplace investigations. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jordon has worked closely with employers to develop workplace safety protocols and navigate recent state and federal legislation impacting medical and sick leave, unemployment benefits, and workplace accommodations.
  • While in law school, Jordon worked as a Director and Student Attorney in the University of Minnesota Child Advocacy Clinic, representing clients in juvenile delinquency and child welfare matters. She also represented inmates serving mandatory life without parole sentences for offenses committed as juveniles, a sentence found unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.
