Wisconsin Supreme Court Rules Menards Does Not Have to Reinstate Former General Counsel

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that an arbitration panel exceeded its authority in ordering that Menards reinstate its former Vice President and Executive General Counsel, Dawn Sands, following her wrongful termination. Menards had refused to reinstate Sands following the arbitration award and the Supreme Court sided with Menards on the grounds that reinstating Sands would be forcing her to violate her ethical obligations as an attorney. The case was remanded to the circuit for the issue of front pay as that would be the more appropriate remedy.

The case is Sands v. Menard, Inc., 2010 WI 96.
