The biggest and best employment law event in Western Pennsylvania is virtual this year!

Be updated on the critical legal issues impacting the workplace and your practice

Hearing from the judges is always a highlight of the Institute. The Institute gets off to a lively start as the Honorable Mark R. Hornak, the Honorable Maureen P. Kelly and the Honorable W. Scott Hardy share their experiences and tips on employment litigation. You won't want to miss this quick-paced, eye-opening session in which Colleen Johnston moderates our distinguished panel of judges.

The popular Year in Review is back - Join us for a lively point/counterpoint discussion between plaintiff's lawyer Samuel Cordes and management lawyer Douglas Smith, moderated by Louis Kushner, as they examine the most interesting and significant employment law cases of the year. You'll not only learn the holdings of recent cases, but get practical insights into how these changes impact your clients. You'll also learn what's trending in 2021!

The Institute is the Go-To Event of the year for everyone practicing in the employment law field. You'll be updated on all the newest developments including:

  • What did we learn from the Coronavirus?
  • Social media, politics and social justice in the workplace
  • Racism and ethics
  • Managing ADA and FMLA Cases in a COVID-19 world

The Employment Law Institute West continues its proud tradition of bringing you practical and realistic solutions to everyday and unexpected problems in employment law, especially during the uncertainty of COVID-19.

Recorded in November 2020.
