WASHINGTON, D.C.—Stacy A. Hickox has joined the law firm of Kalijarvi, Chuzi, Newman & Fitch, P.C. (KCNF) as Counsel. She will focus on discrimination, retaliation, and disciplinary issues for employees.

Before joining KCNF, Hickox was an Associate Professor and Associate Director at the Michigan State University School of Human Resources and Labor Relations.

Her research focused mainly on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and resulted in 25 published articles, with several concerning accommodations for people with disabilities, as well as issues of alternative dispute solution, bullying, and workplace harassment.
