TOPIC: Everything You Need to Know about the Janus Decision and its Impact – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

Join Philly LERA for a timely presentation on the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31. Three months after the Court’s rejection of the 41 year Abood v. Detroit Bd. of Education precedent, what is the impact of the Court’s finding that the payment of fair share fees in the public sector violates employees’ 1st Amendment rights? Come for a better understanding of what the decision does (and doesn’t) hold and a discussion of reactions, political responses, legislation and litigation.


Lance Geren, Esq. (O’Donoghue & O’Donoghue) and Bill Kennedy. Esq. (Montgomery, McCracken, Walker & Rhoades) will explore Janus from both sides of the table. Join us for an engaging and informative presentation and discussion.
