ALI-ABA ExploresLabor Law For Corporate Counsel

Tuesday, January 5, 2010 - 01:00

The ALI-ABA has scheduled Employment and Labor Relations Law for the Corporate Counsel and the General Practitioner for Thursday and Friday, January 21 to 23, at the Hilton Washington Embassy Row in Washington DC.

This course gives lawyers on the firing line a comprehensive overview of the myriad laws and governmental regulations that control the employment relationship. It is a basic introduction for new lawyers in the field, and at the same time brings more experienced practitioners up to date on the current developments in this rapidly changing field.

By the time the course is presented in late January, 2010, the new directions in Washington will be more apparent. Congress already has overturned by legislation several key U.S. Supreme Court rulings, and agencies are revising regulations and considering new obligations for employers.

By the end of this course, attendees will be able to recognize the employer's legal exposure; plan positive employment practices; draft basic employment contracts, rules, and manuals; advise clients on practical procedures to avoid or minimize significant risks in their employment relationships; and decide intelligently when to seek more expert advice or outside counsel.

Planning chairpersons are Peter M. Panken, Epstein Becker & Green, P.C.; Frank Cummings, lecturer, NYU and University of Virginia Schools of Law; and Kay H. Hodge, Stoneman, Chandler & Miller LLP.
