On November 6, 2014, Lieff Cabraser attorney Kelly M. Dermody will be speaking at the 8th Annual Labor and Employment Law Conference. The American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law’s Annual Conference will take place in Los Angeles, CA from November 5-8.

Dermody will address workplace trends in a transitioning society. Along with other panelists, she will discuss how the working environment changes with the times. With women earning 10 million more college degrees than men since 1982 and more open discussion on diversity in the workplace, these trends are reflected in the professional world as well.

Dermody is the managing partner of Lieff Cabraser’s San Francisco office and chair of the employment practice group. She supervises many of the most challenging employment class action lawsuits, including complaints brought by female and minority professionals alleging gender/race discrimination by top Wall Street firms, overtime pay lawsuits against nationally prominent corporations, and ERISA claims that she has tried on behalf of employees and retirees for pension plan abuses.
