Employment and Labor Law Seminar to Review the Basics

Albuquerque, N.M.—Employment law is the large body of laws, administrative rulings, and precedents which encompass all areas of the employer/employee relationship, governed by thousands of federal and state statutes, administrative regulations, and judicial decisions. The scope of legislation and court decisions affecting the workplace presents an ever-changing and difficult challenge for employers. Continuing legal education is essential to labor law attorneys who must keep up to date on possible decisions by the Supreme Court, federal and state laws, human rights, wage and hour laws and procedures, jury instructions, and mediations.

The State Bar Employment Law Section will address these issues and more in Basics of Employment Law, a continuing legal education event March 16 at the State Bar Center.

Speakers include Danny Jarrett, Andrea Robeda, and Victor Montoya, all from the law firm of Jackson Lewis LLP. Topics include anti-discrimination laws, substance use and abuse in the workplace, restrictive covenants and trade secrets, EEOC systemic violations, and legislative updates.
