Managing large and small workforces against the backdrop of a challenging economy and a new presidential administration has raised several areas of concern within management-side, labor and employment circles.  Please join our panel comprised of experienced Sheppard Mullin labor attorneys and in-house employment counsel for a discussion on how the labor and employment law landscape has changed through the first 100 days of the Obama administration.

This 1.5 hour complimentary seminar will be presented by: 

  • Jonathan Stoler, Partner, Sheppard Mullin
  • Gregory Schick, Partner, Sheppard Mullin
  • Lisa M. Lewis, Associate, Sheppard Mullin 
  • Eric Raphan, Associate, Sheppard Mullin  
Our program will feature informative discussions on, among other topics:
  • Labor and employment cases pending before the U.S. Supreme Court and legislative updates; 
  • Executive compensation restrictions under the Troubled Assets Relief Program ("TARP") and other challenges to covered employers under the American Recovery Reinvestment Act of 2009 (also called the Stimulus Act); 
  • How to avoid layoffs and alternatives to workforce reductions; 
  • Managing fair employment practices in the wake of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act; and
  • An update on the Employee Free Choice Act and what employers should be doing now to prepare for the potential changes to longstanding labor laws
