Kathy and Margie were honored to be selected to speak and present papers at this year’s annual conference for the National Employment Lawyer’s Association (NELA).
Hundreds of employment lawyers from across the country gathered in Atlanta to learn from one another and celebrate another year of advancing the cause of workplace rights. Out of 85 speakers, including several state and federal judges, Kathy and Margie were proud to be two of the three speakers from Houston.
Kathy led a session on strategies for getting employment cases past summary judgment and through to a jury, which is harder than you think.
Margie spoke about the best way to prove retaliation in light of recent cases from the United States Supreme Court.
NELA celebrated 30 years of advocacy at the convention. Butler & Harris is close behind, with 27 years of handling discrimination cases!
