Maslon is pleased to be a sponsor of the 25th Multicultural Forum on Workplace Diversity, presented by the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business from April 9-11, 2013. The Multicultural Forum on Workplace Diversity is one of the largest diversity and inclusion conferences in the country, and the theme this year,
Our Time To Lead
, celebrates 25 years of leadership. The three-day forum features roundtable discussions, diversity and inclusion workshops and training, and career and vendor exhibitors. Howard Tarkow
, partner in Maslon’s Labor & Employment Group, will co-present an afternoon workshop on day two titled “Important Workplace Law Developments: What Leaders Need to Know.” The program will explore current legal developments in anti-discrimination law and the role the National Labor Relations Board is taking in protecting employees from an employer’s adverse actions. On day three, Howard will facilitate a morning discussion featuring Commissioner Kevin Lindsey, who leads the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, and Laurie Vasichek, senior trial counsel for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, who will provide valuable and timely insight into the work those government agencies are doing to enforce workplace discrimination laws.
Howard Tarkow focuses on representing employers on their workplace issues and concerns. For more than 30 years, Howard has advised Maslon's business and nonprofit clients to help them maintain positive employee relations and minimize the risk of expensive and disruptive legal claims. His litigation practice includes representing employers before judges, juries, and arbitrators.
