Jones Walker Presents Lafayette Labor & Employment Seminar
October 4, 2010

Jones Walker's Labor & Employment Practice Group will host a labor and employment seminar October 27, 2010, in Lafayette, titled "The Times They Are A-Changing: Change is What the Obama Administration Promised, and Change is What We've Got." The seminar, a follow-up to the popular New Orleans and Baton Rouge seminars, will cover a variety of hot-button issues in labor and employment law. With countless changes to legislation and even more new laws on the way, it is imperative that management professionals stay on top of changes so that they can protect their businesses from potentially costly and reputation-damaging litigation.

This seminar will cover subjects of interest to management professionals, including:

  • New employment laws and prospective legislation
  • Health care reform and recent employee benefits developments
  • Conducting internal investigations
  • Immigration compliance issues
  • Ensuring union defenses in the face of increased union activity
  • The "unfair" Labor Standards Act
  • EEO update and best practice review

Members of Jones Walker's Labor & Employment Practice Group will be on hand to discuss the issues above, as well as what businesses can do to prevent costly lawsuits and compliance violations. Jones Walker's Labor & Employment attorneys offer clients one of the largest, most diverse, and experienced labor and employment law practices in the region.

The seminar will be held October 27, 2010, from 8:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m. at the City Club at River Ranch, 1100 Camellia Boulevard, Lafayette, LA. The cost is $75.00, payable by check or money order. Contact Courtney Farley at or 504.582.8121 for registration and payment information.
