Joel Abrahamson and Dominic Cecere to Present at 2015 North Dakota State HR Conference
Joel Abrahamson and Dominic Cecere will present "Positive Employee Relations Strategies for Employers with an Overview of Recent NLRB Actions," at the 2015 North Dakota State Governor's Workforce and Human Resources Conference. The conference, which is being hosted by Governor Jack Dalrymple, the North Dakota Department of Commerce and the North Dakota Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), runs September 16-17, 2015 at the Holiday Inn Fargo, North Dakota.
Joel and Dominic will provide attendees with important strategies for developing and maintaining positive employee relations in light of drastic changes to the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) interpretation of the union election process. The changes affect all employers, regardless of union or non-union status. Employers and their human resources teams must be prepared for the significant impact of the new rules, and they must take informed action to ensure their workforce is not susceptible to union organizing efforts. Joel and Dominic will also provide an overview of the recent rule changes, NLRB decisions and policy affecting employee relations.
Joel is an experienced litigator representing businesses in employment law and traditional labor law matters. He has successfully defended clients in court and before government agencies across the Upper Midwest in employment lawsuits and charges based on alleged discrimination, retaliation, disability accommodation failure, breach of contract, defamation, promissory estoppel, and other statutory and common law claims.
Dominic is co-chair of the firm’s Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits group. He focuses his practice in the areas of labor relations, labor negotiations, employment law and litigation. Dominic has represented national and international businesses in NLRB trials, labor arbitrations and labor contract negotiations, and he has defended employers before state, local and federal agencies as well as state and federal courts.
