U.S. Practice Director Jonathan Grode to present at ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA

Jonathan A. Grode

As part of the Labor and Employment Law Section proceedings at this week’s 2016 American Bar Association Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA, U.S. Practice Director, Jonathan Grode will be presenting the work entitled, “Civil Labor Enforcement, Private Claims and Supply Chain Accountability: What You Can Do To Help Fight Human Trafficking.”

Jonathan will serve as the moderator for four speakers, who will discuss the responsibility of employers and labor enforcement agents in the fight against human trafficking throughout the world. Specifically, Jonathan and the other speakers will discuss the importance of providing compensation to victims of forced labor through civil litigation, along with management tactics for companies in order to prevent or eradicate human trafficking in their global supply chains. The most recent federal regulations against human trafficking in the private sector will also be explained.

The presentation correlates with the launch of Green and Spiegel’s International Supply Chain Initiative, which will formally assist companies with putting into practice many of the systems and procedures that the presentation will discuss. Two of the speakers at the event, Laurel Bellows of Bellows Law Group, PC, and Christopher Johnson, Jr. of the Center for Justice, Rights & Dignity will join Jonathan in the management of the initiative, which positions legal practitioners as advocates and facilitators of the fight against global human trafficking and forced labor.

It is a distinguished honor to be selected to present to such a wide-reaching audience, and we are very proud of Jonathan and all of his hard work for such a great cause!

US and European Partners are Moving Towards Reopening Transatlantic Travel by Adopting New Pandemic Protocols

KEY POINTS: • Foreign nationals who wish to travel to the United States from Europe either must fit into one of the travel restriction exceptions or obtain advance permission to board a plane to the U.S. • In the alternative, they may travel to a third country and quarantine there for two weeks prior to coming to the United States. • The U.S. and overseas partners are anxious to relax those restrictions. Advanced COVID-19 airport testing may provide a solution. • We expect some testing of these technologies followed by the announcement of new travel protocols in time for the winter holidays.
