BARNEStorming: Labor and Employment Legal Trends Northwest Indiana Manufacturers and Business Owners Need to Know

Two of the biggest areas of risk and liability – from both a dollars and time investment perspective – facing manufacturers and businesses across Northwest Indiana are: 1) the increase in wage and hour claims filed by current and former employees, including on a class and collective action basis; and 2) unions, whether it be a company attempting to remain union-free or managing a union relationship it already has. Good news: Barnes & Thornburg’s Labor & Employment Department’s experience in these areas is vast, and it is excited to announce a complimentary 2-hour seminar tackling these issues exclusively for employers in the area. The team will dig into recent stats, cases, and personal anecdotes on wage and hour and labor relations issues, and also provide a primer on the recent discrimination and retaliation issues to keep you apprised of trends you need to monitor and strategies you can consider to position your organizations favorably going forward.
