A Note from the Editors

With so much of the nation’s media coverage devoted to the presidential race, international developments, and the frenzy that is March Madness, we wouldn’t be surprised if you missed a few of the latest developments in employment law. No worries. Our Employment Matters bloggers have been busy covering the news you need to hear — including potentially game-changing employment rulings resulting from a flurry of activity at the US Supreme Court. See our Recent Keepers below for highlights, and click on “This Month’s Blog Posts” for a generous collection of employment law posts from March 2016.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us or one of our team’s attorneys.
