Activities

Committees
Committees plan the Section's programs and activities. Practice Committees focus on traditional labor laws, alternative dispute resolution, and employee rights and responsibilities. Ad hoc committees are formed from time to time to address new developments in labor and employment law, such as the recent proposal by the California State Bar to create a legal certification for a "Labor and Employment Specialist."
