Kathy Butler at the 25th Annual Advanced Employment Law Course

If a seminar is about Advanced Employment Law topics, it is not surprising when Katherine Butler is one of the speakers.

Last month, the State Bar of Texas held its 25th Annual seminar on Advanced Employment Law up in Dallas. Kathy presented her paper, a 2016 Year in Review for federal employment law cases. The paper covers nearly 60 recent employment law cases and addresses all the employment laws we know and love: including the ADA, FMLA, FLSA, and  good ol’ Title VII.

As the first speaker of the day, Kathy was tasked with keeping the audience awake at 8:30 AM. With cases she described as “Disability Smack Down,” and “Some Judges Just Don’t Get It,” Kathy had no problem keeping the audience’s eyes and ears open.
