250 employment law practitioners, corporate counsel, government administrators and Human Resources professionals gathered at our 5th Annual Employment Law Conference to learn from a balanced, expert faculty that included in-house counsel, local employment law attorneys, and Hon. Arlander Keys of the Northern District of Illinois. The audience heard panel discussions on new employment legislation, the ongoing threat of discrimination and retaliation claims, wage & hour issues, the impact of health care reform, and the use and risks of social media. United States EEOC Attorney John Hendrickson returned as a featured speaker and offered updates on his local office's policies, procedures, and systemic initiative.
