About the Program

In a May 2007 publication, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) addressed unlawful discrimination against working parents and other caregivers. As a presidential candidate in 2008, Barack Obama stated that he would commit the government to enforcing those agency guidelines on caregiver discrimination. Now, under new leadership the EEOC has issued an April 2009 supplement called Employer Best Practices for Workers with Caregiving Responsibilities. Join Matt Rita, a partner in Ford & Harrison's Denver office, for this timely program presented by Celesq® AttorneysEd Center in partnership with West LegalEdcenter, which describes the EEOC's guidance and suggests practical ways in which to navigate this evolving area of employment law.

While Matt's primary practice area is complex commercial litigation at both the trial and appellate levels, with substantial experience in the employment law arena, he also provides substantive legal advice and counseling on an ongoing basis. Matt strives to keep clients apprised of developments in the law, both informally and through publications and presentations, including his article last fall entitled "Family Responsibilities Discrimination: An Evolving Theory Under Federal Law," and his national web casts with Celesq® AttorneysEd Center, including a recent program on new Federal Rule of Evidence 502.
