The Chicago Chapter of the Labor and Employment Relations Association will present a program on October 2, 2008 to provide valuable insight regarding two significant developments in employment law. GINA, which recently was signed into law, protects employees from discrimination on the basis of genetic information and its misuse. The ADA Restoration Act - expected to be enacted soon - would extend the rights protected by the ADA in response to Supreme Court decisions which narrowed the ADA's scope. Materials will be provided. A box lunch will be served.

The panel for this program includes labor, employee, and management advocates:

Alejandro Caffarelli (Caffarelli & Siegel Ltd.)
Steve Pearlman (Seyfarth Shaw LLP)
Rick Stewart (Fraternal Order of Police)
Annette Tyman (Seyfarth Shaw LLP)
