Even though it’s the summer, there are several employment law events going on today and in the upcoming weeks that you may be interested in:

  • First, at noon today, we are holding a free webinar on the implications of the Ricci v. DeStefano case for employers.  You must register here for the webinar in order to receive a link to join us.  It should last no more than an hour.  I’ll try to post the presentation link later this week.
  • Later this afternoon, at 2:30 p.m. the Connecticut Bar Association will be hosting a reception immediately following the installation of Jonathan B. Kreisberg as Regional Director of Region 34 of the NLRB.  It will be held at the William F. Starr Hall of UConn School of Law.  You can contact the CBA for more details.
  • I also received word that the Labor & Employment Committee of the CBA Young Lawyers Section will be hosting a panel discussion about the Ricci v. DeStefano case on August 18, 2009 at the Quinnipiac Law School.  Details will be forthcoming, but early indications are that the attorneys involved directly with the case, Karen Lee Torre and Rick Roberts, have agreed to appear. 

Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not extend my warm congratulations to my colleague Joshua Hawks-Ladds for his appointment to be chair of the CBA’s Labor & Employment Section, effective July 1, 2009. I know he has big plans for this year and I look forward to being able to report on the upcoming events.
