Some major areas of labor law haven’t changed in over 30 years, and some change regularly. Every labor attorney, human resource specialist, and union representative in government needs to have both a firm foundation in the historical perspective and precedence of FLRA decisions, as well as a strategy for taking advantage of any new flexibilities and approaches that are coming out of an ever-evolving Federal Labor Relations Authority. This training week does just that.

Become a certified FLRA practitioner: FLRA Law Week participants are eligible for the FELTG Certified Practitioner Program.
