Don’t Get Tripped Up by Federal Labor Law
Over the past year, the current labor board has issued a number of decisions that specifically limit the right of non-union employers in their ability to manage their employees. Learn how to avoid the most recent pitfalls created by the NLRB that impact both union and non-union employers.

HIPAA Enforcement Efforts On the Rise - What You Need to Know to Protect Your Company
The number and severity of penalties being assessed for HIPAA privacy and security violations are increasing at an alarming rate. We will review recent HIPAA privacy and security guidance, and what employers and business associates need to do to protect against potential penalty assessments.

You’ve Got a Secret – Protecting Your Company’s Intellectual Property
You’ve invested tremendous resources into developing, manufacturing, and marketing your products and ideas. Your workforce is well aware of the ideas that have made you successful. How do you protect your investment? What role do non-compete and confidentiality agreements, copyrights and patents play in the workplace? What are the limitations of each and how do you structure and implement them with your workforce and vendors? We’ll discuss these issues and more.
Sally Scoggin, Andrea Bond and Dan Rosenberg, Shareholders

Terrible, Rotten, No Good, Very Bad FMLA Issues
We’ve all had to deal with them and they challenge our wits and patience. We will review vexing FMLA issues that have repeatedly crossed our threshold, and through hypotheticals, offer practical tips on how to avoid having a bad FMLA day become a worse one.
Michael Miller and Ann Huntrods, Shareholders

The Impact of Electronic Evidence on Employment Litigation
Computers have dramatically changed the way employers investigate and defend employment litigation. We will address the benefits of and the burdens imposed by electronic evidence, how information can be recovered from computers even though it has been “deleted,” and we will discuss options for preserving electronic information. This session will also focus on non-traditional evidence sources, such as the iPhone, iPad and social media.
