Start your day with a lively and entertaining hour of ethics with special guest presenter Larry Cohen, who uses movie clips to illustrate ethics rules and violations. Next, discover how the prevalence of social media is requiring employers to examine how social networking and the workplace intersect (or, in some instances, collide). In addition to an employment and labor law update, this seminar offers two breakout sessions: one focuses on the NLRB, while the other takes a look at the amended ADA and new leave laws. The afternoon sessions include a review of arbitration issues, cases, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Finish the day learning how to incorporate persuasive advocacy in your practice even if you rarely go to court.
Cosponsored by the Labor & Employment Law Section.
