SCMA 2017 Employment Institute “Mediating Employment Cases in Changing Times” — June 20, 2017

June 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Mediating Employment Cases in Changing Times

Tuesday, June 20, 2017, 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Co-Sponsored by:
The Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution and
Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud and Romo


The American workplace is rapidly changing, and the mediation of employment disputes in these times, although interesting, is increasingly more challenging.  Just as we have seen significant changes in political and social arenas, both federal and state laws have taken on a greater importance, particularly in the areas of traditional workplace discrimination and harassment claims, and with respect to protections for LGBT employees and undocumented/immigrant workers.  Additionally, long standing rules and case law have been construed in recent years to redefine, and in some instances expand, what is considered protected activity and retaliatory misconduct in the workplace. There is much uncertainty ahead.

Please join our panel as they discuss the evolving employment law landscape, along with the practical implications and application for both mediators and practitioners.  Each of the panel members are leaders in the field of employment law, and will share their expertise, insights, and predictions for the world of employment law to come.

Color Coding

All community events are shown on the calendar in blue, while all events that are for SCMA members only are shown on the calendar in yellow. This lets people see at a glance what type of event they are able to attend.

Narrow Your Results

At the top of the page there is a section that says “Narrow Your Results”.  This area has drop down menus with checkboxes next to each item. Go through each menu section and click any or all of the items that match what type of event you’re looking for. Then click the button that says “Submit” to view your filtered results on the calendar below.

Change Calendar View

On the top right side of the calendar there are two fields – one says ‘Events In” and has a field where you can select which month to view. Next to that is a field that says “View As”. The default setting is “month”, so you can view the events like a regular calendar. If you prefer, though, you can opt to view the events in a list instead. Or, click “map” to view a map that highlights where each event is located. Finally, you can view as “photo” to see all a list of the event titles and their associated images.
