Lisa Matukaitis will serve as faculty for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s 23rd Annual Employment Law Institute being held in Philadelphia on April 27 and 28, 2017.  Joining two other employment attorneys, the panel will speak on:

Unique Employment Issues in Litigating Against Public Employers

Mention an employment claim against a public entity and many employment law practitioners cringe.  Suing municipalities, school districts, and governmental entities can bring added layers of difficulty, including 11th Amendment immunity defenses, limitations on damages, and exceptions embedded in laws and regulations.  At the same time, employees of governmental entities often enjoy higher levels of rights than do private sector employees.  Our balanced panel will demystify these issues so you can effectively represent your clients in the pursuit or defense of employment-based claims against federal, state, local municipalities, and school districts.
