On March 14, 2014, Health Care Principal Robin Locke Nagele and Employment & Employee Relations Principal Andrea M. Kirshenbaum presented, "Quality Metrics, Contractors and the 'Right to Control': Extending 'Employee' Rights to the Independent Medical Staff," at the Pennsylvania Bar Association's (PBI) 20th Annual Health Law Institute. 

PBI's annual Health Law Institute provides attendees with education and insight on innovative concepts, current trends, and legal updates, as well as professional networking, first class reference materials and a top notch faculty. The Institute has a proven track record of teaching practical and realistic solutions to everyday and unexpected problems in health law.  

Ms. Nagele and Ms. Kirshenbaum examined the trend of independent physicians being found to qualify as “employees” under employment discrimination statutes and offer ways for hospitals to pro-actively anticipate, prevent and manage these potential employment discrimination exposures.
