Robert Boonin Shares Perspectives on Key Labor and Employment Issues at Two Michigan Events

Presents at ICLE's 39th Annual Labor & Employment Symposium; Addresses 6th Annual Michigan HR Day Conference

May 15, 2014

Robert A. Boonin, Detroit-based member in Dykema's Labor & Employment practice, was a featured participant in two recent Michigan events.

At the Institute of Continuing Education's (ICLE) 39th Annual Labor and Employment Law Symposium, held last month in Northville, Michigan, Boonin provided a comprehensive update on the latest developments and trends under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and also served as a panelist for two sessions of "The Year in Review for Human Resource Professionals."

Boonin, who chairs the Labor & Employment Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan, also chaired the plenary sessions on the first day of the conference and provided a Section update. 

For nearly four decades, the ICLE Labor & Employment Law Symposium has been a "must attend" event for Michigan-based practitioners, providing high-level discussion of the latest and most important developments in the labor and employment law arena.

In a separate event last month, Boonin was a key presenter at the 6th Annual Michigan HR Day Conference. This conference—a day-long event in which leading state Human Resources professionals exchanged information, ideas and experiences—was held in Lansing, Michigan. 

Boonin delivered a 75-minute presentation, "Wage and Hour Landmines: Avoiding Lawsuits and Liability in an Aggressive Enforcement Arena," which was accredited—providing attendees 1.25 hours credit through the HR Certification Institute.
