Tricky HR Situations with Wayne Young & Dan Herrington

Dan and Wayne will present Tricky Situations from A to Z -- hiring to discharge to accommodation to harassment and more.  They will expound on the court and administrative rulings that will provide attendees valuable insight into some of the most challenging issues facing today’s HR practitioners.  One of them will play the role of employee's counsel in arguing the tricky situation.  The audience members will actively participate, serving as the initial judge and jury.

Wayne Young is a partner with Friday Eldredge & Clark and a member of the Labor and Employment Law Practice Group. His practice focuses on employment and labor law including discrimination matters, harassment, wage and hour compliance, family and medical leave and covenants not to compete. He advises his clients in these matters from the compliance stage, to defending government investigations and litigation if necessary. Wayne is often called upon to speak on topics such as medical marijuana in the workplace,  social media, discrimination and updates to regulations and new legislation. Wayne currently serves as General Counsel to the Arkansas State Council of the Society of Human Resource Management and that organization awarded him the Russell Gunter Legislative Advocacy Award in 2017. He is a member of Central Arkansas Human Resource Association and was awarded the association’s Legislative Advocacy Award for 2018.

Dan has successfully defended those decisions before state and federal agencies and courts, including the EEOC, OSHA, NLRB, DOL, Arkansas Supreme Court and U.S. Court of Appeals for Eighth Circuit. He also has extensive experience in litigating covenant not to compete and trade secret cases.  Twice voted as one of the top labor and employment attorneys in Arkansas by the readers of Arkansas Business, Dan has also been recognized nationally for his work in labor and employment since 2010 in Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business and since 2011 by Mid-South Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America.
