About Our Section
Our Section brings together members from across the full spectrum of labor and employment law, including representatives of labor organizations, management and individuals; neutrals; academics; and government representatives. We regularly deal with and address cutting-edge issues, like the “me too” movement, legalization of recreational marijuana, wage and hour class actions, pay equity, and LGBTQ+ rights. We invite everyone with an interest in workplace issues to join our Section, benefit from our experience and expertise, and enjoy our camaraderie.
Message from the Section Chair
As a member of the Labor & Employment Law Section for over three decades, I can say without hesitation that joining the Section has been one of the most important and productive decisions I have made in my professional career. The peer relationships I have developed through the networking opportunities presented by the Section represent the full spectrum of our membership, and have been invaluable, personally and professionally. We, as a Section, work hard to continue to provide that experience for everyone one of our members, and look forward to the opportunity to continue to do so.
