American Conference Institute\'s 7th Annual Forum on Defending and Managing

Employment Discrimination

Monday, July 27 to Tuesday, July 28, 2015
InterContinental Magnificent Mile, Chicago, IL

The premier employment discrimination litigation conference returns for its seventh year, this time in Chicago, with more in-house counsel client presence and top federal and state jurists who are actively involved in these cases.

The volume of employment discrimination litigation remains on the rise in 2015 as the changes to employment legislation and employment rights & responsibilities continue to be both extensive and significant. In light of the presently growing compensation culture, the recent tendency for employees to be more aware of their rights than ever before, and increased policy targeting by the EEOC, it is obvious that employers and their counsel today cannot afford to be anything less than vigilant.

In response, American Conference Institute is proud to introduce its 7th National Forum on Employment Discrimination Litigation. This conference will provide you with an unparalleled opportunity to convene with expert in-house counsel from: Bank of America, Walmart Stores, Marriott International, Boeing Company, Bridgestone Retail Operations, Ryder System, Equifax, Conagra Foods, HMSHost Corp., U.S. Bank, Canam Steel Corporation, Wells Fargo Insurance, Providence Health & Services, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Masco Corporation, DirecTV, MoneyGram, Family Dollar Stores, Caterpillar Inc., Dupont Nutrition & Health, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Advance Auto Parts and more, as well as a faculty of renowned federal and state judges, and leading outside counsel from around the nation, who will provide you with expert advice, insider strategies, and comprehensive updates on:
