2018 Legal Update

presented by




Approved for 1 HRCI general credit and 1 SHRM-SCP and SHRM-CP PDC


Join us as Littler's Seattle attorneys provide a lively look at new developments in labor and employment law. We will review the effects (positive and negative) of recent litigation, legislative, and agency trends. Additionally, we will explore a wide range of cutting edge labor and employment topics impacting Washington employers of all sizes, such as:

  • Wage and Hour: top areas employers are concerned about and what you can do
  • Developments under state and Federal law regarding pregnancy leave and accommodations
  • The latest trends related to medical marijuana and dealing with drug use in the workplace
  • Overview of recent activity by Seattle with regard to paid sick leave and secure scheduling

Emily Cardenas focuses her practice on defending employers in discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, and wage and hour matters. Her experience also includes defending and prosecuting claims for breach of contractual and non-competition agreements, and claims of trade secret misappropriation. Emily represents clients in state and federal courts throughout the West Coast, and in matters filed with agencies including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the State of Washington Human Rights Commission, and the State of Washington Department of Labor and Industries.  She helps clients stay current and compliant with an ever-changing legal landscape by providing workplace training and drafting employee handbooks and policies. 



Kellie Tabor is a shareholder with Littler Mendelson’s Seattle office. Kellie has represented employers exclusively for over 10 years. She focuses her practice on defending employers in employee-initiated lawsuits and representing them in the enforcement of non-compete and other restrictive covenants. She handles both single plaintiff and multi-plaintiff harassment, discrimination, and retaliation claims, as well as class and collective action wage and hour claims. Kellie also counsels clients on a variety of employment and human resources issues and works with clients to develop personnel policies and employee handbooks.
