Special Local Government Seminar


Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co., Wausau, WI

Presenters: Mary Ellen Schill


This Special Local Government Seminar will focus on the following topics:

  • Local Government Issues under the Affordable Care Act. This presentation will focus on local government issues that arise under the Affordable Care Act such as whether to count volunteer firefighters/EMTs as employees of the municipality and how to count salaried employees that work less than 40 hours.
  • Privacy Issues in Local Government Setting. This presentation will focus on privacy issues that are arising in the local government setting and discuss the impact of recent legislation and court decision on the ability of a local government to regulate the speech and conduct of public sector employees.

In addition, Ruder Ware will address any ruling from the Wisconsin Supreme Court regarding Wisconsin Act 10 if a ruling is issued by the time of the Seminar. We anticipate the Wisconsin Supreme Court will render a decision on the constitutionality of Wisconsin Act 10 in the near future but are not sure that it will be finalized by the February date.

Everyone is encouraged to attend this Special Seminar. It is important for local government officials to understand their obligations under the Affordable Care Act and their obligations under the First Amendment of the United States/Wisconsin Constitution.

Please communicate your attendance plans to Shannon Nest at so we can make proper arrangements for the event. We look forward to seeing you at this Special Local Government Seminar.
