Drew Capuder Will Be Speaking At Upcoming West Virginia Employment Lawyers Association Conference

I look for­ward to speak­ing at the West Vir­ginia Employ­ment Lawyers Asso­ci­a­tion’s annu­al con­fer­ence on Octo­ber 12 and 13, 2018, at Hawk’s Nest State Park in Anst­ed, West Vir­ginia.

I will be speak­ing and pre­sent­ing an arti­cle on the Har­less wrong­ful dis­charge doc­trine, which deals with ter­mi­na­tion of employ­ees where the employer’s moti­va­tion alleged­ly vio­lates a sub­stan­tial pub­lic pol­i­cy.

I will also be pre­sent­ing an arti­cle and par­tic­i­pat­ing in a pan­el dis­cus­sion on social net­work­ing & elec­tron­ic dis­cov­ery issues.

Here is infor­ma­tion on the con­fer­ence, join­ing the WVELA, and attend­ing the con­fer­ence.
