Message from the Chair

One of the responsibilities of the Section Chair is to develop special projects for the year. For example, Sherril Colombo, chair during the 2012-13 bar year, oversaw the preparation of the survey of Section members regarding Labor and Employment Law Certification. Bob Turk, 2013-14 chair, increased our networking with the NLRB by organizing meetings with regional office personnel. Shane Munoz, 2014-15 chair, started a project designed to gather information from the U.S. District Judges in the three federal districts on standard practices in FLSA cases, with the goal of developing useful resources for practitioners, including potentially a set of model forms.
