Michael A. Shadiack, co-chair of Connell Foley’s Labor & Employment Law Group, will discuss “Exploring the Unsettling Aspects of Settlement” for the USLAW Network Inc.’s Employment Law Exchange, being held May 5-6 at the Hotel Monaco in Chicago. The presentation will take an in-depth look at the nuances and potential issues that arise when an employer settles a lawsuit with an employee. The session, which will include an interactive review of a real-life fact pattern, will cover best practices in determining whether to engage in direct negotiations or to mediate. Attendees will also be provided strategies to help secure a comprehensive, protective and enforceable settlement and release agreement, including tax consequences and special requirements related to claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act, Medicare Secondary Payer Act and the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act.
