    Program Description:

    This program will update HR Professionals on the significant legal changes that occurred in 2013 and what to expect going into a new year.

    Presenter Information:

    Jack Wallace is an experienced litigator of labor and employment cases, with experience defending employers against nearly every type of employment-related lawsuit one can think of, from small scale breach of contract actions to large multi-party discrimination and retaliation cases, as well as cases involving constitutional claims and tort claims. Jack also represents employers before state and federal enforcement agencies, including the handling of wage and hour investigations and audits conducted by the United States Department of Labor and discrimination investigations conducted by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The defense of class/collective actions under the FLSA and related state laws is a growing part of Jack's practice. Jack also has significant experience assisting employers in non-competition litigation.

    Jack is an experienced speaker and presenter on labor and employment law topics for HR professionals and business owners. His goal is always to provide practical advice by distilling complex or confusing areas of the law to their essence. And sometimes he likes to just stop and poke fun at the courts and enforcement agencies when they simply don't make any sense.


    Previously based out of Jacksonville, Florida and New York City, Jack is now based out of Constangy's Kansas City office.
