Employment Law Update:  A Look Back and A Look Forward
Laura Friedel, Partner & Chair, Labor & Employment Practice Group
Levenfeld Pearlstein LLC

Employment laws are constantly changing. As we approach year end, it's important to consider recent developments and what's expected in the year to come. In this session, we will discuss the most important employment law developments from 2017 and the issues that are expected to be at the forefront in the coming year.

This session will assist you in...

  • Understanding recent employment law developments and how they impact your company
  • Evaluating areas where your company may not be in full compliance
  • Identifying areas for minimizing risk as part of 2018 planning
Laura FriedelAbout our speaker...Laura Friedel is a partner and chair of the firm's Labor & Employment Group. She helps businesses maximize their most important and often trickiest asset – their employees. Laura works with companies to develop employment documents, policies and practices that improve employee relations while protecting the company's investment in its people and minimizing legal risk. When disputes arise, Laura works closely with clients to determine their business goals relating to the claim and then targets the litigation, arbitration or settlement discussions to meet those goals. And when a union is involved (or is seeking to insert itself), Laura helps companies understand and meet their obligations under labor laws while still adhering to their larger business goals.
