Yes, it’s time again for Young Conaway’s Annual Employment Law Seminar!
We are very pleased to announce that our keynote speaker for this year’s event will be William Kenan Torrans, Chief Investigator, Veterans’ Employment and Training Service, U.S. Department of Labor. Mr. Torrans will be conduting a plenary session on what I believe is one of the most critical issues that will face employers in 2012–the application of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Act (USERRA). USERRA’s provisions are far reaching but many employers are unaware of the law’s implications. As the number of military service members returning home continues to increase, so, too, do the number of complaints received by the Department of Labor. I am looking forward to what is sure to be an insightful presentation on an important subject.
Other topics and speakers include:
- The Changing Face of Social Media, Molly DiBianca
- NLRB In Union and Non-Union Workplaces, Barry Willoughby and Molly DiBianca
- Special Topics for the Public Sector, Bill Bowser, Scott Holt, and Mike Stafford
- Background Checks, Adria Martinelli and Lauren Moak
- Independent Contractors, Scott Holt
- Education Law Update, Bill Bowser and Mike Stafford
As previous attendees know, we believe that a healthy dose of fun is the best way to learn any subject (and especialy employment law). In previous years, some of us were brave enough to present our topics in the Pecha Kucha style. The sheer humiliation factor of that experience was enough to nearly bring down the house.
This year, we’re ready to turn the tables a bit and put you in the limelight! Don’t miss Employment Law Jeopardy, hosted by Bill Bowser, where brave volunteers can show just how closely they’ve being paying attention at these seminars over the years. It’s an hour that is sure to be hilarious and educational for everyone.
We hope to see you on May 9!
