Labor & Employment

About the Labor & Employment Section

For members drawn from the representation of plaintiffs and defendants, management and labor; from state and federal government agencies; and from the field of neutrals who resolve disputes in these areas, we offer frequent opportunities for continuing legal education, lively interaction, and public service. 

Section Activities

Bar Journal

Section members provide articles for the May issue of the CMBA Bar Journal.

CLE Programs

We sponsor our annual Northern Ohio Labor & Employment Conference, now in its 19th. Over two days, we will offer timely topics and engaging presentations - and you'll earn at least 12 hours of CLE in the process.

Monthly Meetings

Monthly luncheons, with one hour CLE, are held on the third Wednesday of the month, September through June.  Join us for lunch, CLE and conversation!
