On September 23, 2016 the Oklahoma City Chapter of the Federal Bar Association welcomed the Labor & Employment Section’s traveling CLE team to present “Employment Law in a Nutshell.” U.S. Magistrate Judge Suzanne Mitchell, the Chapter’s incoming President-Elect and Vice President of Programs/Outreach Coordinator, introduced the talented panel, which included Brett Strand, 3M’s Legal Affairs Counsel in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Betsy Chestney, Partner, Cornell, Smith, Mierl & Brutocao in Austin, Texas; Amber Hurst, Partner, Hammons, Gowens, Hurst & Associates in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Josh Solberg, Shareholder, McAfee & Taft, PC in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The panel presented a three-hour CLE program covering a variety of topics, including anti-discrimination, harassment, retaliation, DOL’s new overtime rules, updates on the FLSA, FMLA, employee leave, timely wage payment obligations, and Oklahoma-specific laws and regulations. The event, held at the William J. Holloway, Jr. Courthouse in the Western District of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, hosted more than forty attendees. The Chapter held a social hour after the CLE at the Colcord Hotel’s Flint Restaurant in Oklahoma City.
