Employment law has seen many changes in the past year, and you won’t want to miss this opportunity to efficiently catch up on all of the latest developments, as well as a chance to gain insight about trends on the horizon. MCLE will host its 16th Annual Employment Law Conference featuring workshops from practitioners to provide you with everything you need to know to keep your employment law practice up-to-date. Learn about the effect of new statutes, regulations, and MCAD policies and procedures. Hear about current philosophies, assessments, and strategies in dealing with a variety of practical employment law issues. Customize the Conference by selecting from among the cutting-edge workshops that best fit your particular needs.
WilmerHale Partner Laura Schneider will speak on the panel, “Employee Leave of Absence, Including Leave As a Reasonable Accommodation and the Impact of the Overturning of DOMA.” Panelists will discuss an ever-perplexing area of the law—Leave of Absence. How much leave is an employee legally entitled to? Add the EEOCs interest in this area of the law, and the overturning of DOMA, and the answer to this question becomes even more varied and uncertain.
