Even before a company files for bankruptcy protection, multiple employment and labor issues can arise.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) February 26, 2018
Bankruptcy law is generally a federal-based practice, and governed by title 11 of the United States Code (the Bankruptcy Code). Bankruptcy law, however, is far from an insular practice; there is substantial interplay between bankruptcy law and almost every other area of law due to the myriad legal issues that arise during the course of a bankruptcy case. This webinar series focuses on how issues involving intellectual property, employment and labor, tax law, and environmental law are treated through the prism of bankruptcy.
The first episode of the series, The Intersection of Bankruptcy and...Labor/Employment, airs on March 5th at 2:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Jonathan Friedland of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. He is joined by Shelley Kinsella of Elliott Greenleaf, Mark S. Melickian of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger, and Jesse Moore of Dykema Cox Smith. to discuss the myriad of employment/labor issues that may arise in the context of a bankruptcy.
Even before a company files for bankruptcy protection, multiple employment and labor issues can arise. This webinar addresses the ramifications of the failure of a debtor to comply with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), which requires employers to provide written notice in advance of covered plant closings and mass layoffs under certain conditions and may subject the debtor to liability. It also examines employee wage and claim issues that are often triggered by the filing for bankruptcy protection, as well as the special treatment provided by the Bankruptcy Code for collective bargaining agreements and retiree health care benefits, which makes modification or rejection of such agreements more difficult during the bankruptcy proceeding.
