Game On: If You Play, Must We Pay? Exploring the Controversy of Student-Athletes as Potential Employees  

Program: 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
Location: At Your Desk

Complimentary Webinar

College athletes have, for decades, maintained what has been viewed as an amateur status which, if one is fortunate, could develop into a professional career.  However, at the National Labor Relations Board, current leadership has taken a view that college athletes should be treated as employees and, indeed, that the term “student athlete” itself is an unlawful stripping of legal rights.  Legal cases are in progress with claims that employee rights have been violated by failing to recognize that colleges and universities have an employment relationship with their athletes.  At one prominent university, a union has already been elected and certified to represent a basketball team for collective bargaining, with the expectation that such activity at other institutions will follow.  This webinar will discuss the laws underlying these issues and what lies ahead.

Join us for this complimentary informative webinar. 



At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will have access to the recordings for a limited time.  Participants will receive an email with a copy of the information to be presented prior to each session.
