    HOW DO TELECONFERENCES WORK?

    Teleconferences are cost-effective and convenient. You participate in the entire conference from your office using a regular telephone and your access code. Plus, for one fee you can have as many people participate as you can fit around a speakerphone, but only the registrant will receive CLE credit from NELI. This teleconference will run for approximately 1-1/2 hours with a 30 minute Q&A following. During the speaker presentation portion of the conference, registrants are in a "listen-only" mode. After the presentation portion is concluded, the phones are "opened up" for an interactive Q&A session, with conference attendees queuing up to ask questions of the presenters. Questions can also be submitted via email at any time during the conference to be responded to during the Q&A session.

    HOW WILL WE RECEIVE THE PROGRAM MATERIALS?

    Within three business days of the program you will receive an email from NELI with the toll-free phone number, access code and link to a PDF attachment containing in-depth program materials. The supporting material for NELI's Ethics teleconference is Mr. Duffy's Ethics and Professionalism Handbook for Labor and Employment Lawyers, 10th Edition. You may want to print out the material prior to the teleconference. If you do not receive the email within two (2) days of the teleconference, please contact NELI.

    CLE AND OTHER CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT:

    NELI's programs are routinely approved for credit in all jurisdictions with such requirements and we expect this program to receive full accreditation provided that the jurisdiction approves teleconferences. (Ohio does not approve programs of this kind.) Registrants may be required to file for credit on their own behalf in some jurisdictions. We will provide all necessary forms and proof of attendance. Ethics credit will be given to registered participants only.

    If you have questions regarding your state, please contact NELI.
