Santa Monica, CA
Michael Sullivan, chair of the firm's Labor & Employment Group, will be the headline speaker for the 2014 Alliance of Public Charter Schools Attorneys conference in Santa Monica, California. On September 11, 2014, he will address the effect of the Supreme Court's Noel Canning decision on charter schools.
Mike and Jon Klinghoffer authored an amicus curiae brief for the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools in the Chicago Mathematics & Science Academy Charter School, Inc. case that confirmed the National Labor Relations Board's jurisdiction over charter schools. The future of that decision's holding after Noel Canning is in question and Mike has been asked to guide charter schools through the resulting, complicated decision tree for schools who are being organized by labor unions.
