Labor and Employment Law News

Posted on: Nov 4, 2015

On Thursday, October 22 we held our Employment Law for Small Businesses Seminar for local small businesses and attorneys who were seeking basic employment law information. We had approximately 40-45 attendees this year, which is a significant increase from our numbers in our inaugural seminar last year. I want to thank all of our presenters, as well as Brian Burbrink and other section committee members, for volunteering to organize this event. I also want to thank our Indianapolis Bar Association staff members, in particular Deneen Fitzgerald, for their support in making this seminar a success.  

I hope many of you can and will be attending our 2015 Federal Employment Agency Meet & Greet. It is this Thursday, November 5. The seminar will be from 4 to 5 p.m. with a reception to follow from 5 to 6 p.m. It will be held at Tavern on South, which is at 423 W. South Street in downtown Indianapolis. It will feature Patricia Lewis, U.S. Department of Labor; Joanne Mages, National Labor Relations Board; and, Webster N. Smith Sr., Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  Please click here for more information.

As this is the last Labor & Employment Law Section update for 2015, which means it is my last update serving as Chair of our section, I want to thank you for your support. I also want to thank the section committee members and Indianapolis Bar Association staff for their hard work, organization and dedication this year. It has been a pleasure to get to know and work with everyone. I look forward to working with the 2016 incoming Chair, Brian Burbrink.
