CHICAGO, Aug. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- John Marshall Law School Professor Kathryn Kennedy and Veterans Legal Support Center & Clinic Director Brian Clauss will be speaking at the Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service's National Labor-Management Conference in Chicago next week.

Kennedy, the associate dean for Advanced Studies & Research at John Marshall and the director of the law school's Center for Tax Law & Employee Benefits, will be moderating the "Retirement Security in the Future @Work" panel on Wednesday, August 17.

"The focus of my panel will be the gaps in savings, barriers to savings and possible solutions. With such experts on hand to provide insights, it should be a powerful conference," said Kennedy.

Clauss, director of John Marshall's Veterans Legal Support Center & Clinic, will be participating in the panel "Warriors Returning to the Workplace" also on Wednesday, August 17. "Our panel will be discussing the common workplace issues faced by returning veterans, National Guard and Reserve members, legal requirements for employers and labor organizations and practical solutions for insuring successful labor-management relations on military service related issues," said Clauss.

"We are excited and honored that Kathryn Kennedy and Brian Clauss will take part in our program to share their expertise on labor trends in this new environment and their vision for the 21st century workplace," said Allison Beck, director of the FMCS. "With our conference theme 'The Future@Work: Trends, Tools and Techniques for Partnering in the New Economy', we could not ask for more insightful analysts or thoughtful commentators on contemporary labor issues."

The three-day national labor-management conference will be held from August 17 to August 19 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago. More than 70 workshops, programs and networking events will focus on how the need for good labor-management relationships is more critical than ever as new technologies, business models and labor market trends fundamentally change and challenge nearly every sector of the U.S. economy.
