Seminar on Monitoring Freedom of Association

The Cornell ILR School and its Labor and Employment Law Program announce the 2011 Seminar on Monitoring Freedom of Association (FOA) under Corporate Codes of Conduct and Social Compliance Programs, to be held on Thursday and Friday, May 19-20, 2011, at the Cornell ILR NYC Conference Center in midtown Manhattan, NYC.

Led by Cornell faculty members Lance Compa and Sarosh Kuruvilla and guest lecturers, the 3rd FOA seminar continues its focus on the thorniest areas of labor standards monitoring: freedom of association, the right to organize, and the right to collective bargaining. Building on previous seminars and addressing the significant developments in the field since our last program in 2008, this year’s seminar on freedom of association provides new and up-to-date content, with a focus on practice-oriented analysis and discussion of FOA standards and best practices in the field.

Registration is limited to 25 persons to ensure a highly participative learning and exchange experience.

Note: The seminar is designed for strategic planners, managers, advocates and policy makers; it is not a monitor training session.

Date and Time:   

Thursday and Friday, May 19-20, 2011, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm


Cornell ILR NYC Conference Center, 16 East 34th Street, 6th floor, New York, NY
