Kameron Melton is a member of the Labor & Employment and Cybersecurity & Data Privacy practice groups at Woods Rogers. She focuses on guiding her clients through complicated personnel matters and defending clients in federal and state court.
Through counsel and training, Kameron helps managers and HR professionals understand and comply with federal and state labor and employment laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Title VII, the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), and the Virginia Human Rights Act. In addition to her training sessions, Kameron often reviews or creates employee handbooks and policies that address her clients’ unique workplace.
Because data security is a top concern for many clients, Kameron also offers guidance on managing cybersecurity incidents discretely and efficiently. To lower the risk of such incidents, she drafts policies to encourage cyber-resiliency in the workplace. Kameron also represents clients in trust and estate litigation proceedings.
Building better workplaces through training is particularly important to Kameron. She enjoys speaking to audiences about preventing harassment, workplace discrimination, and data privacy law obligations. She has spoken at conferences and workplaces across Virginia, including Woods Rogers’ annual Labor and Employment Seminar series.
Kameron joined Woods Rogers as an associate after completing judicial internships with the Honorable Justice Cleo E. Powell, Supreme Court of Virginia, and the Office of Chief Staff Attorney of the Supreme Court of Virginia.
In the community, Kameron passionately mentors and advocates for youth by coaching cheerleading at Lucy Addison Middle School and serving as a board member of the Children’s Trust of the Roanoke Valley. As part of the leadership team of the Roanoke Urban Arts Project, she serves an organization dedicated to effecting meaningful change through inclusive art projects. She is also a member of the InclusiveVTCSOM (Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine) Task Force that is developing a strategic plan for the medical school relating to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. In 2017, the Roanoke Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference honored Kameron with the Dr. Perneller Chubb-Wilson Award for Justice.
