On May 5, 2016, Jon Landesman and Evan Blaker presented their seminar, “Popcorn and Employment Law: HR Lessons from the Movies and Television“, at the Tri-State Human Resource Management Association (HRMA) 30thAnnual Conference in Mt. Laurel, NJ.
A good employment law case is a lot like good theater. Indeed, Jon and Evan regularly deal with situations filled with drama, an outrageous cast of characters, love triangles, acts of violence, and hard-to-believe plot twists.
In this face-paced and interactive presentation, they reviewed short clips from some of their favorite movies and television shows and analyze them from an employment lawyer’s perspective.
This presentation covered a wide variety of substantive areas, including hostile work environment claims, workplace violence, unfair competition and trade secrets, and disparate treatment on the basis of gender, race, and national origin.
