    Changes and new mandates are coming quickly and often with little advanced notice to employers.  Is your organization prepared for the bargaining implications of the new overtime exemptions and joint employer rulings, as well as other aggressive labor policies pursued by the DOL and NLRB?  What will a new presidential administration bring?  Other topics to be discussed at this session include the implementation of discipline in a unionized environment and the NLRB’s intrusion into employer handbooks and the workplace. 

    Ms. Callaway earned her undergraduate degree cum laude, Juris Doctor degree, and Masters of Science in Industrial Relations, all from Loyola University of Chicago.  Ms. Callaway concentrates her practice in the areas of labor and employment law.  Before joining our firm, Lisa was a partner at Clark Baird Smith LLP, Vice President and General Counsel for the Management Association of Illinois, and an associate practicing in labor and employment law at two other Chicago law firms.  Over the past decades she has represented school districts, community colleges, municipalities, other local governmental entities, and private companies.  Lisa has a wealth of experience negotiating public and private sector collective bargaining agreements, and has also represented public and private sector clients in federal and State court litigation and before the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, the State and federal departments of Labor, the Illinois Human Rights Commission, and the Illinois Educational and Public Labor Relations Boards.  She frequently lectures on labor and employment law issues at local, State and national conferences and has authored articles on topics such as employment discrimination, employment termination, and workplace Internet/e-mail misuse.
