Morgan, Brown & Joy attorney Desiree Y. Murphy will speak on a panel at the Boston Bar Association’s (BBA) Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Labor and Employment Law Section seminar, “From Class Action Waivers to Independent Contractors: Recent Developments in Federal Labor Law,” May 21, 2019, in Boston, MA.
Murphy will provide employer and union perspectives on major legal developments, including the Supreme Court’s decision on class action waivers in arbitration agreements and the National Labor Relations Board’s decisions affecting employer and employee coverage by the National Labor Relations Act. The panel will also discuss protections for employees in non-unionized workplaces and future implications for employers and unions.
Murphy’s practice involves representing employers in a variety of labor and employment matters, including counseling employers on claims of employment discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, breach of contract, and wage and hour disputes. Her practice also includes representing employers in collective bargaining as well as grievance and arbitration proceedings. Murphy is a member of the steering committee for the Labor and Employment Section of the Boston Bar Association and serves as Secretary of the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts Black Women Attorneys.
BBA is the Commonwealth’s premier legal institution, bringing together the brightest and most influential people to lead at the forefront of the profession.
