The presentation will be held on Friday, May 12, 2017, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at 16 Beacon Street in Boston. Registration information is here.
Shannon’s presentation will feature discussion of claims and defenses in a wrongful termination case.
The Boston Bar Association describes the event as follows:
The vast majority of all employment is what is known as “at-will.” As a general rule, an at-will employee may be terminated at any time for any reason, or no reason at all. There are, however, a breadth of statutory and common law exceptions to the at-will doctrine. For lawyers new to the field of employment law, the ability to identify and evaluate the many potential claims and defenses in a wrongful termination case is an essential skillset. This program will provide an overview of the exceptions to the at-will doctrine, with particular focus on the public policy exceptions recognized under common law.
This event is part of the Boston Bar Association’s “Friday Fundamentals” educational series, which is designed to offer lawyers an introduction to basic legal skills and fundamental knowledge of various practice areas.
David Isaac Brody of Sherin and Lodgen LLP will also be speaking on the panel, and Brian MacDonough of Sherin and Lodgen LLP will be moderating.
