For those attending the Connecticut Bar Association’s Annual Meeting today in Hartford, Connecticut, there are two excellent employment law programs being offered.

  • The morning program, on Damages in Employment Law,  will discuss how to evaluate and litigate damages, including discovery, mental examinations, the value of expert testimony, the risk of punitive damages, mitigation, tax and insurance implications, and settlement. My colleague, Joshua Hawks-Ladds, will be on the panel.
  • The afternoon program discusses "Strategic Planning When Representing a Client in an Employment Dispute: The Perspectives of Management and Employees" .  The panel will review and debate several strategic issues, such as: potential claims, investigating the claims, class action or not, damages issues, preservation of evidence, early settlement, forum selection, administrative and court proceedings, and alternative dispute resolution.

In addition, those attending will receive the CBA’s Annual Labor & Employment Law in review packet. I edited and compiled the materials this year so I can attest to their helpfulness for both the in-house attorney and those in practice.

I will be in attendance today so I look forward to seeing you there.
