Tom Gigot will be presenting the ALI-ABA course of study Employment and Labor Relations Law for the Corporate Counsel on May 1-3, 2008 at the Conrad Hotel in Chicago, IL.

This course gives lawyers on the firing line an introduction to the myriad laws and governmental regulations that regulate the employment relationship. It is a comprehensive introduction for lawyers new to the field. At the same time, the course serves to bring more experienced practitioners up to the minute on current developments in this rapidly changing field.

This course teaches you what the laws affecting the employment relationship require, and how to help clients comply and minimize employer exposure to expensive government agency, individual, and class action lawsuits. You also learn about laws regulating labor-management relations, plant closings, safety, and employee benefits.


By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Recognize the employer’s legal exposure;
  • Plan positive employment practices,
  • Draft basic employment rules and manuals,
  • Advise your clients on practical procedures to avoid or minimize significant risks in their employment relationships; and
  • Decide intelligently when to seek more expert advice or outside counsel.
