The Labor & Employment Law Future Forum

Strategies for Rapidly Changing Legal, Regulatory and Economic Environments
OCTOBER 26 - 27, 2017 | THE CONFERENCE BOARD | NEW YORK, NY

October 26 - 27, 2017

About the Forum

The accelerating pace of change in technology affecting the replacement of jobs and the nature of work; the large demographic shifts altering the future workforce; and powerful changing political winds pushing in some cases in opposite directions between federal and local levels – all make this event more relevant than ever. The Labor and Employment Future Forum will provide in-house labor & employment practitioners valuable insights and actionable strategies that go beyond the latest circuit court decision to examine the most important technological, economic, and demographic trends in employment; insider perspectives of those shaping major federal, state and local policies; and detailed case studies on how fellow organizations are responding to these trends. 

Who Should Attend

We recommend this forum for practitioners from companies with a large U.S. workforce, with or without unionized elements, especially if it encompasses multiple states. 

  • General Counsel
  • Employment Law Chief Counsels and senior team members
  • HR senior members
  • Law firm partners & senior associates specializing in employment
