“Paul Goyette served as a panelist at the Labor and Employment Section of the California State Bar’s 15th Annual Public Sector Conference. Paul provided keen insight regarding the prosecution and defense of administrative claims of disparate treatment, harassment and other issues of fair employment (Session title: “To Claim or Not to Claim”). Paul was able to share his expertise in this practice area by conveying practical and meaningful information. He definitely knew his material and his audience. Undoubtedly, Paul was well-received by those who attended the training session, and he would be invited back to provide continuing education to members of the Section”.
