Kick off NELA’s 2013 Fall Seminar by joining NELA members from around the country for NELA’s Lobby Day 2013: Raising Our Voices For Change on Thursday, October 17. Lobby Day 2013 will focus on two legislative campaigns of great importance to employee rights advocates, their clients, and the fair administration of justice: (1) the Arbitration Fairness Act (S. 878/H.R. 1844), and other legislation to ban forced arbitration of employment claims; and (2) the Civil Justice Tax Fairness Act (S. 1224/H.R. 2509), formerly known as the Civil Rights Tax Relief Act, which allows for income averaging of lump-sum awards, and restores the tax-free status of non-economic damages.
