Labor & Employment Law

The Labor and Employment Law Section consists of attorneys who represent employers, employees and labor organizations in employment, labor and civil rights disputes. Many of its members gather annually for one day of continuing legal education, and many attend the annual Bar Meeting, at which the Section co-sponsors two hours of continuing legal education. 

 

The Labor and Employment Law Section hosted a teleseminar "COVID-19 & HR Law: Overview of Families First Coronavirus Response Act" on Friday, April 3, 2020. Click the link below from the recording and materials.
