Navigating the Rising Seas of State and Local Employment Laws: Employee and Management Perspectives

Events

Tracey Truesdale co-presents “Navigating the Rising Seas of State and Local Employment Laws: Employee and Management Perspectives” at the Chicago-Kent College of Law’s Institute for Law and the Workplace Employment Law Conference.

The political polarization of employment legislation at the federal level has led to the proliferation of employment laws at the state and local level. This presentation addresses recent developments in Illinois, Cook County, and Chicago, including minimum wage, paid sick leave, business expense reimbursement and employee privacy concerns, and how issues such as preemption and concurrent jurisdiction play a part in defending claims.
