Rome, Italy - May 5-9, 2013

American Bar Association Section of Labor & Employment Law
International Labor & Employment Law Committee
Midyear Meeting
 
Executive Director, Cathleen Caron, spent one week in Rome as a guest of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Labor & Employment Law International Labor & Employment Law Committee during its Mid-year meeting.  This ABA section brings together U.S. lawyers who represent employers, employees and unions—all sides.  It is unusual to have lawyers who represent opposing sides come together to discuss issues of shared interest.  Since the conference was in Europe there was a regional focus to the conference and there were many European lawyers present who are ABA “associates.”  The foreign lawyers deal with U.S law firms or companies and therefore have a vested interest in understanding U.S. laws, the challenges U.S. lawyers face litigating overseas, and of course finding connections. 
 
The four-day conference reflected well the diverse interests of its members and their particular vantage points.  The topics covered analysis of the austerity programs in Europe and the disastrous (and one-sided) effects on working people: Privacy issues in the age of Linked-In and other social media; Whistleblower protections; Gender discrimination; Rights of Unions; and family issues in the workplace, amongst others.
