Join our mission

Intuit is a mission-driven, global financial platform company that gives everyone the opportunity to prosper. With products like TurboTax, QuickBooks and Mint, we’re using technology to build solutions to challenging financial problems for millions of people around the world.

Overview

Our HR Legal team believes in finding solutions, driving change, taking smart risk, and creating the best possible experiences for the leaders and stakeholders we support. We coach our partners around the world to work through problems, not tell them what to do. We believe in talking and writing like real humans, not lawyers. We have a healthy dose of humility and like to think we’re funny, although that’s up for debate. We love finding ways that data and technology can make us better at what we do. We believe diversity and inclusion among our teammates produces better results and is critical to our success as a global company. We are committed to recruiting, developing, and retaining the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool.

If that sounds like the right place for you and you’re ready to do some of the most impactful work of your career, we want to talk to you.  

This role sits on our HR Legal team of two attorneys and a paralegal. The role works closely with other teams in our Legal, Compliance, and Policy and People and Places (HR) organizations.

As an employment counsel, you will give legal advice and support for the People and Places (HR) team around the world. You will also work on employee legal disputes and our HR compliance program.

What you'll bring

  • 5+ years of employment law experience at a law firm or in-house
  • Litigation experience either at an outside law firm or in house
  • Deep knowledge of HR legal concepts, terminology and principles
  • Strong preference for experience with benefits and compensation legal issues
  • Strong preference for experience supporting HR compliance and providing advice to teams outside the U.S.
  • Experience working with complex data and metrics to drive decisions, assessing risk or managing complex litigation
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills, including being able to communicate the most relevant information to influence and drive change without having to provide every detail of legal analysis
  • Strong organization and project management skills
  • Ability to learn new technology and tools
  • A learner and innovator who’s never afraid to try something new, experiment and has a bias for action (try it and learn)
  • Someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment with a “can do” mentality
  • Strong personal ethical code and integrity and deep respect for privacy and confidentiality
  • Alignment with our Legal, Compliance, and Policy Organization ethos, which requires a strong commitment and accountability to the company and each other and connecting to others as humans and colleagues

How you will lead

·       Advising our HR partners on a range of employee-related issues, from pay equity questions to complex exits to wage and hour compliance

·       Tracking new HR legal developments and changes in the external environment that impact our practices and approach and translating those into clear actions

·       Developing strategy and overseeing responses to employee legal claims, litigation and government audits, generally working with external counsel

·       Helping with worker-related incident management and escalations

·       Partnering with Total Rewards and Payroll teams to ensure programs are managed within legal parameters

·       Driving cross-functional teams on HR legal projects to implementation (not just providing advice)

·       Identifying and scoping key HR legal risks for the company and develop recommendations

·       Deeply understanding Intuit’s unique culture and values and bringing those into all the work we do

·       Execute priorities and initiatives for the broader legal and compliance organization, including the many new challenges presented by the external environment

·       Assisting other legal teams on work with HR legal implications, including, for example, due for acquisitions, privacy compliance and implementation

·       Coaching and teaching other team members about critical legal and compliance issues and guardrails to help them address issues on their own

·       Navigating tensions between legal requirements and business outcomes while maintaining positive relationships

·       Receiving and giving feedback and coaching as needed across boundaries and functions
