Very good presentation.

Edward
Hanover, NH

excellent though clearly a defense/ corporation person. But very knowledgeable. It would be good for balance to show some cases where plaintiff(s) were successful as well, as opposed to simply her own cases or those before the U.S. Supreme Court. However apart from that, it was excellent.

The same course presented by an attorney from the employee's perspective would be extremely valuable after hearing this thorough and useful presentation from the standpoint of an employer's attorney.

Craig
Santa Ana, CA

Despite the speaker's disclosure of her possible defense bias, I was really impressed how objective, realistic, and FAIR she was in her comments. It shows me that, maybe, it's defendants, not their attorneys, who are responsible for the unfair treatment of employees that is encountered at times. I thought she was as good as any speaker I've ever heard in a MCLE course.
