Labor and Employment Chair Amy L. Bess and Shareholder Elizabeth Hall will present at PLI’s annual Employment Law Institute at the PLI New York Center on October 15 – 16, 2019. This two-day event offers a comprehensive review of case law and regulatory developments, an in-depth analysis of emerging issues and best practices designed to maximize employment law compliance, mitigate legal risk and achieve business objectives. Ms. Bess will act as Co-Chair of the conference and provide opening remarks.

Ms. Hall will speak on the “Cannabis in the Workplace” panel, a new addition to the Annual Employment Law Institute. She and her co-presenters will discuss new laws on medical and recreational cannabis use, interplay of federal and state laws, accommodation of medical marijuana use and the impact on drug testing, discipline and safety policies.

The two day program is designed for private practitioners, in-house counsel, human resources and other business professionals who seek an in-depth analysis and discussion of often subtle and rapidly evolving issues arising in employment law. Click here for more information or to register.
