Description

[UPDATE]

Louis Ferrara, Deputy Director with the Illinois Film Office has been added to the workshop and will be sharing a presentation and Q and A session on the benefits of producing your film and media projects in Illinois. The film tax credit presentation will follow the presentation on Illinois employment law updates for the Chicago film and media industry and small businesses. The happy hour will begin immediately following both presentations.


Join 21 Century Work Strategies for a lively and fast paced presentation on employment issues in the Chicago film and arts industry and a networking happy hour hosted by Stage 18 Chicago located on the Cinespace Campus. Attorney Noah A. Frank of SmithAmundsen will address hot topics such as employee handbooks, pre-employment inquiries, wage and hour landmines including independent contractors and Chicago paid sick leave, discrimination and harassment in the workplace, and mandated breaks.

Mr. Frank practices at SmithAmundsen, a full service litigation and business law firm. He enables businesses to excel under increasingly regulated and taxing environments, while protecting them from harmful litigation. As the go-to legal resource and trusted business partner, he analyzes complex risks and formulates strategies for cost optimization, considering legal liability, litigation avoidance, and best practices. Mr. Frank provides practical and thoughtful advice, strategy, and solutions in a full range of employment, corporate, and workers’ compensation matters, including compliance, policy implementation, and risk mitigation of wage and hour, discrimination, harassment, leave interference and retaliation claims including under the FLSA, Title VII, ADA, ADEA, FMLA, OSHA, NLRA, Worker’s Compensation, and state and local laws.

Noah advises employers on day-to-day issues such as employment agreements (including NDAs and restrictive covenants), leave and return-to-work management, discipline, disability and religious accommodation, and severance agreements. He trains management in legal compliance, and is a frequent author and invited speaker on these and other topics. Mr. Frank attended the University of Illinois where he earned his bachelors, masters in human resources, and juris doctorate degrees. He has been peer-recognized as an Illinois Super Lawyers Rising Star each year 2012-2019.
