Please join us for BakerHostetler's “Labor Relations and Employment: A Time of Change” Master Class. This daylong seminar is designed to offer all new high-level courses, hitting specific and practical headline issues that will be affecting employers of all sizes in all industries.

In the year since the inauguration of the current administration, the agents for change have proven the adage that the only thing certain is change. Indeed, the turmoil and uncertainty wrought by the dramatic extremes from Obama to Trump has caused the workplace to be in a constant state of flux. Like the news, every day appears to bring different issues to the forefront in the employment setting. As a result, those managing the workplace cannot rely upon tried and true ways of doing business. The 2018 edition of the Master Class in Labor Relations and Employment will explore in detail these changing issues and directly advise on how to handle them in this unique environment.

Who should attend?
  • General Counsel
  • Directors of Labor Relations
  • In-House Lawyers
  • Directors of Human Resources
  • C-Suite Executives
