We are pleased to share that Munger, Tolles & Olson partner Katherine Forster will join other labor and employment professionals at the 44th annual Labor & Employment Law Symposium, which will take place on March 28 in Los Angeles, California.

Ms. Forster will serve as a panelist in the “Lifecycle of an Arbitration” breakout session, which will include a discussion of what employment law practitioners should expect when handling a single-plaintiff arbitration matter, from pre-demand tactics, discovery challenges, the hearing itself and enforcement of any award.

In addition to having litigated scores of wage/hour and discrimination class actions as well as collective and representative actions, Ms. Forster has particular expertise in helping companies navigate highly sensitive claims for sexual harassment and abuse, gender discrimination and pay equity. Her litigation experience includes whistleblower retaliation claims, executive compensation matters, trade secrets disputes, constitutional issues and claims arising under the Unruh Civil Rights Act, as well as federal and state employment laws. Ms. Forster also handles internal investigations and provides strategic labor law compliance advice to employers and management. She has extensive experience in the entertainment and media, technology, retail, food and beverage distribution, financial services, communications and nonprofit sectors.
