Burt H. Whitt Inducted as Fellow in the College of Labor & Employment Lawyers

    Kaufman & Canoles is pleased to announce the election of Burt H. Whitt as a new Fellow in the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. Election as a Fellow is the highest recognition by one’s colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession, exemplifying integrity, dedication and excellence.

    Mr. Whitt is Chairman of the firm’s Labor and Employment Practice Group. He has extensive experience exclusively representing management in all matters involving the employer-employee relationship. He routinely represents and counsels employers in wrongful discharge claims, accusations of discrimination or harassment, covenants not-to-compete, and government audits of employment practices. Mr. Whitt earned his B.A., magna cum laude, from Wake Forest University and his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law.

    The twenty-third installation of Fellows will be held November 10, 2018 in San Francisco, CA, coincident with the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section’s Continuing Legal Education Conference. With the current installation, the College is represented by more than fourteen hundred members in forty-six states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and eight Canadian Provinces.

    The College was established in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of The Section of Labor and Employment Law of the American Bar Association. It operates as a free-standing organization recognizing those who, by long and outstanding service, have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field.
