On April 15, 2016 Sara Rapport presented at and participated in the annual Rhode Island Labor and Employment Law Conference, which convened at the W. Alton Jones Campus of the University of Rhode Island under the leadership of Mark Grossman and other faculty at the Charles T. Schmidt, Jr. Labor Research Center.  Ms. Rapport reviewed recently issued and pending cases before the United States Supreme Court.  Among the highlights, she discussed the controversial Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, in which teachers sought to overturn a long-standing law requiring non-members to pay an “agency fee” to their unions, but which an equally divided Supreme Court affirmed after the loss of Justice Scalia.  Ms. Rapport also addressed the impact that last year’s historic and groundbreaking decision, Obergefell v. Hodges had on employment law.  The decision upheld same-sex marriage under the United States Constitution.
