30 years ago, a dozen plaintiff employment lawyers from nine states decided to form the Plaintiff Employment Lawyers Association (PELA). The founding members envisioned that this new organization would provide assistance and information sought by attorneys representing employees, particularly in wrongful termination cases. It would develop the professional network necessary for effective sharing and support of ideas, successes, problems, and frustrations. PELA would also serve as an instrument for advancing public policy and legislation affecting the rights of employees. Today, PELA is known as the National Employment Lawyers Association.
