The Connecticut Legal Conference on Monday (produced by the Connecticut Bar Association) had several noteworthy programs, including a few on labor & employment law. In today’s post, I’m going to recap the presentation by David Lopez, the current EEOC General Counsel. He talked about the Top 10 Developments in EEOC Litigation over the last few years.
Fortunately, most of my tweets do a good job of recapping the event but I want to highlight one aspect.
Of all the cases he cited, not one is from Connecticut. Why is that? Because of a strong plaintiff’s bar (that is, attorneys who represent employees) and strong state laws as well.
Kudos to the Connecticut Bar Association for this noteworthy speaker and presentation. Very informative.
