No Risk Rules for Reductions-in-Force

11 October 2016 Past Event

6th Oilfield Services Law Conference

Gardere Partner Rachel Powitzky Steely, co-chair of the Firm’s labor and employment practice, will present “No Risk Rules for Reductions-in-Force” at the 6th Oilfield Services Law Conference in Houston.

Downsizing and 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 will discuss reductions-in-force hot topics, such as the WARN Act, essential severance provisions, and the protection of trade secrets and client relationships from departing employees.

Presented by the Institute for Energy Law, the Oilfield Services Law Conference is a must-attend annual event for lawyers working in the oilfield services sector. The conference focuses on areas of particular interest to the services community, such as relationships with host governments and energy companies, procurement policies, compliance, contractual liabilities and indemnities, and employment.
