I hope that you have all had a chance to review the Labor and Employment Law Section’s E-Alerts, published by Jay Lechner and Leslie Langbein, co-chairs of our publications subcommittee. These monthly electronic publications contain short case notes on recent and noteworthy opinions. We are always looking for additional writers so please reach out to either Jay or Leslie, and show your interest.
The first half of the section year has been busy. The 38th Annual Public Employment Labor Relations Forum was held in September in conjunction with The Florida Bar’s Midyear Meeting in Orlando. Steve Meck and Michael Grogram served as program co-chairs. In November the section held a seminar on “Litigating Employment Claims” in Fort Lauderdale, which was co-chaired by Robert Kilbride and Robyn Hankins. Both of these events were very well attended and offered our members the opportunity not only to listen to excellent speakers, but network with their colleagues. The section, under the leadership of Frank Brown, also kicked off its CLE
audio webcast series on December 18th with a program entitled “What Employment Lawyers Need to Know about Obamacare.” Dates and information on upcoming webcasts can be found on the Events page of our website. The webcasts are an easy way to keep abreast of changes in the law and earn CLE credit while sitting at your desk during the lunch hour.
Events in the second half of the section year will include the 13th Labor and Employment Law Annual Update and Certification Review on February 14-15 at the Peabody Hotel, Orlando (make your reservations today because the special group rate expires on January 23rd!), and Advanced Labor Topics 2013 on April 5-6 at Hawks Cay Resort & Marina, Duck Key. I encourage section members and guests to attend these events and to become involved in the section. Perhaps make it your new year’s resolution to become more involved.
On behalf of the Labor and Employment Law Section, I wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season and a very happy, healthy, and prosperous new year.
