Christopher C. Antone, JD
The Conference is pleased to recognize Chris Antone, JD, as the 2015 inductee into the HRSWC Speaker Hall of Fame.
Chris first spoke at The HRSouthwest Conference in 1994 and, for the last 21 years, has achieved universally positive reviews for his presentation content and style.
Chris joined SHRM almost 40 years ago, when he was a member of the Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations’ student chapter of the American Society of Personnel Administration. His dedication to workplace issues continued in law school, where he was recognized as the top graduate in the study of labor and employment law, the specialty area in which he was subsequently certified by the State Bar of Texas.
In addition to a full labor agency litigation and labor arbitration caseload, Chris is also an active speaker with several Texas SHRM chapters, often presenting on various legal matters and hot topics. He also teaches the National Labor Relations Act section to HR professionals seeking professional certification. Chris regularly contributes to the DallasHR chapter, spearheading the organization’s Legal Breakfast Series since 2010. In addition, he is a long-time presenter at the DallasHR Legal Exchange events.
Throughout his 34-year legal career, Chris has been committed to educating all levels of management in achieving their business goals within the law – his focus on prevention rather than cure. Chris would much rather be known as the lawyer-educator than the lawyer-gladiator.
Chris is a shareholder in the Dallas office of Jackson Lewis P.C., having been with the firm for more than 32 years. Chris has been named one of the nation’s top 100 labor lawyers by the Labor Relations Institute for five consecutive years.
