Ethics, Labor and Employment

21st Annual Labor & Employment Forum


The TBA’s 21st Labor and Employment Forum promises to be both practical and entertaining. Six hours of CLE credit have been crammed into sessions on the latest federal and state developments, with separate emphasis on the expansion of labor laws in non-union settings, emerging gender-related issues, and the continued explosion of wage and hour litigation. This year’s list of presenters include judges from each of the Tennessee’s federal districts – U.S. District Judge Tom Fowlkes (Western District), U.S. District Judge Waverly Crenshaw (Middle District), and U.S. Magistrate Judge Chris Steger (Eastern District); and a former member of the National Labor Relations Board, John Raudabaugh. Other speakers, consisting of both employee and employer advocates, include Stan Graham, Donna Mikel, Michael Russell, Heather Collins, and the always controversial Bob Boston. Donald Capparella will offer an ethics presentation that promises to be thought provoking and entertaining. This year’s section chair, John Bode, has agreed to refrain from speaking, but may still bring his box of door prizes. Please remember that seating is limited, so make your reservations soon.
