The premier employment discrimination litigation conference returns for its ninth year, with brand new in-house counsel client presence, government agency insights from within the new Administration and top federal and state jurists who are actively involved in these cases. In light of the recent changes in administration, heightened media focus on gender and racial equality, 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. This conference will provide an unparalleled opportunity to convene with expert in-house counsel as well as a faculty of renowned federal and state judges who will provide insider strategies needed to stay current. Faculty who you will meet include: Coca-Cola Refreshments, Goldman Sachs, Southwest Airlines, Natixis North America LLC, Consolidated Restaurant Operations, Inc., S&P Global, Citizens Financial Group, Inc., W. R. Grace & Co., Sodexo Inc., RELX Group, Graphic Packaging International, Inc., and more. Sessions include:
  • Impacts of the New Presidential Administration on Employment Discrimination Claims
  • The Latest Developments in Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Discrimination Claims
  • Reducing the Risk of Pay Discrimination Claims, Defending Litigation and Best Practices for Conducting a Pay Equity Audit
