Excerpt from Notes from the Chair & Executive Editor:

...Our third quarter edition of SuperVision Today spotlights one of our attorneys from Winston-Salem who has appeared several times in this publication, Erin Jones Adams. We also digest an article written by Jennifer Greenlief that appeared in the DRI's national publication For The Defense in their Employment and Labor Law edition. Carrie Harris of Roanoke takes a look at employers' obligations under USERRA. Eric Kinder examines the practical implications of a recent United States Supreme Court decision under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the newest addition to our team, Lindsay Griffin Smith, discusses one of the latest trends of disability law -- whether obesity alone is a disability.
