Event Details:

Don’t Think It Won’t Happen Just Because It Hasn’t Happened Yet – Surviving the Federal EEO Complaint Process

This interactive session will be presented in the format of a Chicago Chapter CLM study group session.  If interested, our audience will have an opportunity to test their knowledge through pre- and post-tests and hypotheticals. We will hear from our guest speaker, Chicago attorney and law firm Administrator Scott Watson, who has defended clients for nearly 20 years before the EEOC.  We will discuss the types of discrimination investigated by the EEOC, laws enforced by the EEOC, prohibited practices, recordkeeping, responding to a charge, mediation, and likely next steps after the EEOC issues its right to sue.  This session is approved for CLE recertification credit, credit for functional specialists planning to sit for the exam, and one general CLE credit for attorneys.  This bi-monthly is an excellent opportunity for Administrators to demonstrate the value of ALA and the CLM certification by inviting their attorneys to attend.

This luncheon is sponsored by KENO KOZIE.

ABOUT THE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM

Each year, Catholic Charities resettles around 200 refugees who have been forced to flee their homelands due to war, terror and persecution. Through comprehensive case management, job development and K-12 services, Catholic Charities in conjunction with the assistance of numerous volunteers and community partners, support the refugee families in their transition to their new life in the U.S. and move towards self-sufficiency.

I always add value to my firm by attending the ALA Annual Conference. It's a great opportunity to re-engage with everything new and trending in the profession of legal management.
Stephen Wolf, CLM, CPA, Chief Operating Officer, Deutsch Kerrigan LLP, New Orleans Chapter, Member Since 2002

Attending the ALA Annual Conference was the best thing that I could have done for my firm and my own professional career. I sent my executive staff and the partners copies of the outlines for the sessions that I was attending to show value for attending the conference. Partners were already reviewing outlines when I returned on Monday. They agreed that the material was top notch and reaffirms their value in ALA.
