WSHB Partner Alicia Kennon will be moderating a panel entitled "He's Not My Guy: The Joint-Employer Doctrine" at DRI's Construction Law Conference on April 12, 2019 at 2 p.m. On the panel will be Jeffrey Koonankeil of CapSpecialty and Jennifer Stancil of Beazley Group.
Included among the topics to be discussed are the latest developments in the joint-employer doctrine and the impact the doctrine's current version has on construction operations. The industry has been primarily concerned with avoiding or managing defect based litigation but now developers and contractors have new risk in the EPL space including wage/hour based claims, discrimination claims, harassment, and whistleblower based suits. In addition to highlighting the risks, Alicia and her co-panelists will offer attendees some practical tools for mitigating those risks for their clients and companies.

Attendees include construction professionals, attorneys, and insurance professionals, all of whom will benefit from the educational and networking opportunities being made available.
