In the world of labor and employment law, things are changing. Join this year’s ISBA Labor and Employment Law Seminar to keep up with those changes. 

The seminar will provide you with an update on immigration law and the Affordable Care Act – two areas of intense debate in the public square. With the recent activity at the state legislature, attendees will receive an overview of the state legislative process and a review of the changes in public sector collective bargaining and workers’ compensation laws. In addition to an update on the status of the overtime rules, Rick Autry will provide a case law update, which promises to be insightful and comprehensive.
             
For ethics, there is a great panel assembled to discuss the rule of professional misconduct regarding conduct that constitutes harassment or discrimination on the basis of protected classifications. Closing it out will be a discussion of the art of a closing argument in employment cases. 

The seminar will take place on Friday, Oct. 20 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Johnston. View the event webpage for more event information, including registration.
