LAWYERS ETHICS IN EMPLOYMENT LAW, 1 CLE hour
 

Employment disputes require utmost discretion.  Lawyers are exposed to the most sensitive personnel information about workplaces – employee communications and possible misconduct, employer supervisory practices and communications with and about employees, and other sensitive personal information.  At each step of investigating, informally resolving or formally litigating an employment dispute there are substantial ethical issues that lawyers must address.  These involve the propriety of pre-trial investigations, conflicts of interest and waivers, social media usage and discovery practice, among many others. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to identifying ethics issues at each stage of an employment dispute, assessing risks and avoiding ethics complaint and liability.
