Wage and Other Employment Issues Facing Troubled Companies | AIRA Bankruptcy & Restructuring Conference
Fri, Jun 15, 2018, 9:30–10:30 am
Wage and hour laws and employment issues can influence or even trigger a bankruptcy filing. State employment laws and employee classifications can significantly hinder an operating company’s ability to reorganize and can add additional uncertainty to an already challenging process.
Edgeworth Partner Dr. Stephen Bronars will discuss these topics at the 34th Annual AIRA Bankruptcy & Restructuring Conference on the panel “Wage and Other Employment Issues Facing Troubled Companies.” Dr. Bronars and his fellow speakers will address the impact of wage and employment claims on the bankruptcy process, including the decision of a company to file a bankruptcy, how these claims are handled by the debtor, jurisdictional issues, the role of a creditors committee, the treatment of these claims in a chapter 11 plan, and the impact on other creditors and case administration. The speakers will also touch on industries that are ripe for employment law types of claims and recent pertinent cases.
This year’s Bankruptcy & Restructuring Conference will take place June 13-16, 2018 in Nashville, TN. Learn more here.
