Blitman & King attorneys Brian J. LaClair and Bryan T. Arnault will be presenting separate programs at the ABA’s Annual Labor & Employment Law Conference. The conference will be held from November 9-12, 2016 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in downtown Chicago.
On November 10, Bryan Arnault will be a panelist for a conference program entitled “Trends in Sick Leave Law at the State and Local Level.” Bryan and his fellow panelists will address existing state and local laws governing paid and unpaid sick leave as well as the increasing trend for local legislation in this area, including what steps employers are taking to respond to these developments and what trends are evident with enforcement and litigation efforts in this area.
On November 12, Brian LaClair will be a panelist for a conference program entitled “The Pursuit of Compromise: An Examination of Settlement Strategies and Techniques in Single-Plaintiff Litigation.” Brian and his fellow panelists will address settlement strategies in individual employment litigation, including the proper use, valuation and timing of offers of compromise, strategy and timing for alternative dispute resolution, how much pre-settlement formal and informal discovery is sufficient, insurance considerations and general negotiation strategies.
The ABA’s Labor & Employment Section has more than 20,000 members from across the country, a significant number of whom are expected to attend the conference in November. The brochure for the ABA’s Annual Labor & Employment Law Conference in Chicago can be found here.
