Dear Friends and Colleagues:
It is hard to believe that it has been over a month since our meeting in Milan. Thanks to everyone who contributed to making the Milan meeting the success it was.
We now look forward to the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law’s 12th Annual Conference, which will take place from November 7-10, 2018 in San Francisco, California. Our Committee will present the following programs during the Conference, which will focus on current labor and employment issues around the globe:
- A panel
ongender-based violence and harassment will discuss the continued evolution of the #metoo movement and recent issues in human trafficking and gender violence in the workplace;
- A program on the Gig Economy will ask the tough questions of where we are and where we are going and whether the Gig Economy is in fact "working" anywhere and for anyone around the world.
- Finally, we will present a session focusing on how advocacy and litigation compare around the world in labor and employment disputes.
We thank our Track Coordinators, Clare Murray, Bronwyn McKenna
