  • U.S. equal employment opportunity commissioners discuss latest regulations and initiatives
  • U.S. Department of Labor solicitor addresses independent contractor issues

Pepper partner Jonathan Kane is the pro bono co-chair for the luncheon on November 3, where the Perkins award winner will be honored and Professor Holbrook of the Widener Law Clinic will give a presentation on representing disabled veterans.

On November 4, Pepper partner Matthew V. DelDuca will be a panelist on the session, "Dana II — We Can Work It Out." In Dana II, the NLRB concluded that “various types of agreements and understandings between employers and unrecognized unions fall within the framework of permissible cooperation,” noting that not all pre-recognition agreements are lawful with each case turning on its own facts. But which are legal and which are not? Join the panel as they explore what pre-recognition language is permissible and what is not.
