Halunen Law’s Clayton Halunen and Amy Boyle share insights and expertise at the 2020 Upper Midwest Employment Law Institute
September 29th, 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic did not stop Minnesota Continuing Legal Education from holding its annual Employment Law Institute. This year it conducted an online two-day session on September 15-16. Halunen Law was pleased to be an event sponsor. The nearly 1,000 participants engaged in informative breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and interactive activities. Halunen attorneys Clayton Halunen, founder and managing partner, and Amy Boyle, partner and employment law attorney, participated in two ELI presentations.
Clayton Halunen was joined by attorney Gregory Stenmoe of the Taft law firm, in “Wheel of Fortune 2.0 — How to add value to your Employment Case.” The inventive session offered attorneys a light-hearted approach to determine factors in trial verdicts and settlements using actual case scenarios.
In “Plaintiff Attorney Perspectives on New and Recurring Evidence Issues – Causation, ‘Me Too,’ Implicit Bias, and Social Media Communications,” Amy Boyle shared her insight and expertise as the panel provided practical analysis and strategic insights on critical evidence issues in employment cases. These included causation, “me too” evidence, implicit bias, and social media communications. Boyle was joined by attorney Joshua Williams of LRW Law, and moderator Lawrence Schaefer of Schaefer Halleen.
The event was Co-sponsored by Minnesota CLE, the MSBA Labor and Employment Law Section, and the Twin Cities Society for Human Resource Management.
