    Hot Topics in Federal Labor and Employment Law

    1 PM EDT

    Federal employment law is constantly evolving. Several recent cases have had a major impact on how attorneys litigate these cases. This program will examine:

    • Case updates from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Merit Systems Protection Board and the Federal Labor Relations Authority;
    • The federal government shut down and its effects;
    • The effects of recent Executive Orders including the order that aims to reduce the time it takes to fire poor-performing federal employees;
    • Reasonable accommodation requests for service/comfort animals in the workplace;
    • The high burden of having to prove “nexus” for disciplining a federal employee that commits off-duty misconduct;
    • The continued backlog of EEO complaints and the danger of reprisal; and
    • The continued significance of Ward v. USPS and its progeny.
