SANTA MONICA, June 23, 2016: Harry I. Johnson, III, a partner in Morgan Lewis’s labor and employment practice, has been elected a fellow of The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. Mr. Johnson will be inducted at the College’s 21st Annual Induction Dinner on November 12 during the American Bar Association Labor and Employment Law Section’s Continuing Legal Education Conference in Chicago, IL.
Mr. Johnson joins 19 other Morgan Lewis colleagues who are current fellows. Membership in the College is by invitation only, honoring lawyers who have made a sustained contribution to the field of employment law and meet the highest standards of integrity, professionalism and character.
A former member of the National Labor Relations Board (2013–2015), Mr. Johnson serves clients as a management-side defense lawyer in both class action defense and traditional labor matters before the NLRB and federal courts. He practices across the entire traditional union/labor field, including in NLRB unfair labor practice and representation proceedings, union representation campaigns, union corporate campaigns, labor arbitrations, collective bargaining, labor-management relations, labor-related advice for mergers and acquisitions, and federal and state labor injunction cases, with additional experience in anti-union discrimination/coercion and successorship issues.
Mr. Johnson also spearheads the firm’s Employment NOW (Employment Notes and Opinions Worldwide) online video series for employers. He is a regular host of the program, which provides vital tips and information for corporate in-house lawyers and human resources professionals to help them negotiate the complexities of labor and employment laws and regulations.
The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers is a fellowship of accomplished members of the labor and employment law community and serves as a resource of knowledge, skills, experience, and history for the bar, academia, government, and the community at large. With the current installation, the College is represented by more than 1,400 members in 48 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and eight Canadian Provinces.
