Most employers are aware of the many laws under which an employee can sue his/her employer, but is it possible for an individual supervisor to be held personally liable in a lawsuit and forced to pay damages?  Join Ford & Harrison attorney Amy Harrison for a free e-briefing discussing the legal framework for supervisor liability.  Topics to be covered include:
  • individual liability under the FMLA, FLSA, and Section 1981;
  • popular tort allegations included in complaints;
