Save the Date - March 16th Luncheon at noon at SoDo
Save the date for NNWLA Women's History Month luncheon on March 16th at noon at SoDo. The theme for Women's History Month this year is "Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business." One of the national honorees is Lilly Ledbetter, who is well-known for fighting for equal pay and equal rights for women in the workplace. She lost her civil rights case at the Supreme Court in 2007, but she kept fighting and in 2009 the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was signed into law.
For more information about Lilly Ledbetter's case, you can read the Supreme Court opinion here.
Keeping the National theme in mind, NNWLA invited Molly Rezac, a local employment and labor attorney, to do a CLE presentation for us in March. Molly will be discussing recent intriguing case law on non-competes and negotiating employment contracts. We hope you can join us on March 16th at noon at SoDo for what is sure to be an interesting and informative presentation. CLE approval pending.
