Statement from Teresa M. Thompson, Chair, Employment & Labor Department

Fredrikson & Byron hosts annual employment law seminars in Minneapolis, Bismarck, Des Moines and Fargo each fall.  To ensure that we can bring this year’s programming to you all in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our planning team has decided to pivot to an online format for 2020.

The format and presenters for these programs have varied by location in the past, so this year’s agenda will look a little different for everyone participating. We hope you’ll join us as we showcase our full Employment & Labor team, from all of our offices, for some educational and interactive learning this fall!
