PLI's Employment Discrimination Law and Litigation 2011
Friday, June 24 04:00 AM GMT to 04:00 AM GMT
The courts, Congress and state and local legislatures, are constantly adding to, revising and re-inventing the rules governing employment discrimination. This does nothing to diminish either the volume of workplace claims that are brought and litigated in the courts or the complexity of those claims and cases.
Any attorney or human resources professional who advises or represents employers, employees, labor unions or government, or who has judicial/arbitral/mediator responsibility, must keep abreast of changes in the employment discrimination arena, and must also be aware of cutting-edge developments on the litigation front. This program, designed for employment law practitioners and human resources professionals at all levels, brings together prominent practitioners from the management and plaintiffs bars, representatives from the EEOC and ACLU, and members of the judiciary, to analyze and provide practical guidance regarding the latest developments in the employment discrimination arena.
Paul Hastings partner Zachary Fasman is a featured speaker for the "Discrimination Class Actions" session from 11:30 am to 12:45 pm. Discussion topics will include:
Dukes v. Wal-Mart, the Novartis jury verdict and other new cases
When can the grant of discretion to a manager result in disparate impact?
