1 Step Forward or 2 Steps Back: Staying Ahead of Top Exposures in Employment Law

CLE Program

11:30 a.m. - 01:00 p.m.

An ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure. Gardere's Labor and Employment Team wants to keep you one step ahead of new trends by ensuring your employment contracts, policies and practices are up-to-date. Don't wait until you're trying to enforce an outdated non-compete or defending against a full-blown wage and hour class action, and you find yourself two steps behind, facing unanticipated legal risks and the potential for costly exposure. Attorneys Merritt Chastain, Laura Goodson, Neil Martin, Jessica Mason and Rachel Steelywill be speaking.

The following topics will be discussed:

  • A Return to Reason: the Texas Supreme Court's New Position on the Enforceability of Non-Competes
  • Misclassification of Independent Contractors: IRS and DOL Team Up to Crack Down
  • On the Job, But Off the Clock: FLSA Pitfalls for the Unwary
  • Proactive Tools to Stay Above the Fray

This program was approved for 1.0 CLE credit and 1.0 HRCI credit.

The program will be held in the Houston office of Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP at 1000 Louisiana. Complimentary valet parking will be available in the building.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
