Discrimination and Retaliation
In this segment, presenters will discuss the federal, state, and local laws that protect employees from discrimination and termination, and will help practitioners recognize viable discrimination and retaliation claims.

Termination of Unionized Employees in the Private Sector
This section will explore the common procedures available to a unionized employee including the process under a collective bargaining agreement, the associated “just cause” provisions, and the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), and will provide guidance on how an attorney may assist a terminated unionized employee.
