Laner Muchin Partner Debrai Haile Presented "Talent Acquisition IG: The Talent Acquisition Pivot No One Saw Coming” Hosted by the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago


Chicago, IL – Laner Muchin partner Debrai Haile was on a panel discussing “Talent Acquisition IG: The Talent Acquisition Pivot No One Saw Coming,” hosted by the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago on Friday, May 15, 2020.

At the start of 2020, it was a job seeker’s market and unemployment was at an all-time low.  Less than three months later BOOM!  All of that changed.  The way in which people worked changed, hiring freezes were put in place, and companies started furloughing or laying off their employees. Haile and the panel provided a transparent discussion with experts working in the Staffing Industry, Legal and Corporate Talent Acquisition as they predicted what talent acquisition will look like when all the dust settles.

Haile regularly litigates substantial-exposure employment litigation matters, including complex employment contract disputes, wage and hour class actions as well as discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims. Throughout his career, he has obtained dismissals of numerous lawsuits filed against Laner Muchin clients, including many claims with potential multi-million dollar exposure.

He also regularly conducts employment-related corporate investigations in a variety of settings. He also provides, on a nearly daily basis, compliance-related and strategic advice on a broad range of employment issues to clients in a broad range of industries.
