Even with a last minute change venue, MWELA’s Annual Conference, held on March 9, 2012 at the Washington Plaza Hotel, once again proved to be a great educational and social event for its 150 attendees. The Annual Conference also provided a wonderful opportunity to honor long-time MWELA member Joel Bennett as MWELA Lawyer of the Year for his career dedicated to protecting the rights of employees, and in particular for his work defending allegations that his client’s sexual harassment complaint against former presidential primary candidate Herman Cain was frivolous.
