Gardere Partner Rachel Powitzky Steely, co-chair of the Firm’s labor and employment practice, will present “Five Essential Rules for a Reduction in Force” at the 7th Annual Law of Shale Plays Conference in Pittsburgh.
With continuing contraction in energy markets, reductions in force remain a fact of life in the industry. Making the right choices on employment challenges can be the difference between millions in liability or millions in savings. Ms. Steely, along with co-presenter Mark Konkel of Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, will discuss five essential considerations that can make the difference, from Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act considerations to newly enacted overtime pay regulations.
Presented by the Institute for Energy Law and the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation, the Law of Shale Plays Conference will provide timely legal updates on important litigation, transactional and regulatory issues being experienced and addressed by energy attorneys.
