Labor and Employment Law Section on SBM Connect

The Labor & Employment Law Section has launched a new website and interactive online community for its members—SBM Connect. This private community will enhance the way we communicate and build relationships through the Section. Log in to SBM Connect today and see what the buzz is all about!

  • ACCESS to archived seminar materials and the Lawnotes.
  • FIND upcoming Section events
  • NETWORK via a comprehensive member directory
  • SHARE knowledge and resources in the member-only library
  • PARTICIPATE in focused discussion groups

SBM Connect will eventually replace the current section website. Both websites will run concurrently to allow you time to discover the new tools and features available to members.
