"Recent Developments in Labor & Employment Law"

Just as every new sports season brings with it excitement and challenges, every new administration brings new plans, new players and new challenges for employers.  This year, employers will have to work hard to keep up with the full court press of new statues and regulations coming out of the new administration and Congress, and new case law expanding employee protections under existing laws.  This session will review the most important new labor and employment law developments – and attempt to provide practical advice to employers to help them maintain a winning record
