Labor and Employment Law

Message from the Chair Deborah Maddux

I would like to personally invite each of you to the 37th Annual Meeting of the Labor and Employment Law Section which takes place next week – July 15 and 16, 2021. You can enjoy all of the great programs from your home office, sitting in your backyard, or at your favorite AirBnb – all while earning 10 hours of MCLE, including 1.25 hours of Competence credits. There is still time to register here. The conference will cover topics ranging from artificial intelligence and the workforce, to emerging wage and hour trends arising from the remote workplace. Justice Joshua P. Groban of the California Supreme Court and Judge Kenneth K. Lee of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will join us for a judges’ panel which will be moderated by retired Judge Margaret M. Morrow of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. You can see the full schedule of great programs here.

In other news, the Executive Committee is busy preparing for the upcoming year. Last month, we held a special meeting to elect five new Members. Beth W. Mora, Mari Bandoma Callado, Katherine Mola, iYen Phi Chau and David P. Avila will begin their terms this fall. We welcome them and are excited to have their passion, energy and dedication at the table to contribute to our sections programs and activities. As always, any section member who is interested in becoming involved can reach out to me directly at, or incoming Chair Latika Malkani at

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer break, whether that means travel for the first time in a long while, or simply enjoying family and friends. Until next month …
