There is no cost to attend, but registration is required and seating is limited.

Seyfarth’s L&E Department is taking things “On the Road Again!” This time we’ve rounded up a team of the Firm’s experts on Paid Leave and Accommodation Issues. And we’re bringing this Powerhouse to Rosemont!

Please join us for an informative discussion that will cover important 2019 state and federal legal updates. Presenters will provide an insider’s view into the legislative process and share tips to help you prepare for what’s on the horizon. Ellen McLaughlin, who recently testified before Congress on the proposed “Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act” (H.R. 2694) (and which is now winding its way through the legislature), will be presenting on the state of pregnancy accommodations. All our speakers will share best practices and answer questions regarding the interplay between these multi-faceted laws. 

The Road Show will also cover a range of topics, including:

  • Illinois Update - What this year holds for the Flexible Scheduling laws, Chicago and Cook County Leave Laws and more. 
  • Pregnancy Laws - Federal and State (IL focused) developments
  • Short-Term Disability/Long-Term Disability - Insights from the Employee Benefits Experts on the latest issues related to the intersection with leaves and accommodations. 
  • Paid Family Leave - Our National Team will review latest developments and offer predictions as to what to be ready for next year in Illinois and beyond.

We hope you will join us!
