Discuss key practical issues for companies to consider when carrying out investigations in the remote working environment.

Discussion includes the advanced Image Repair Theory crisis communication guide, coordinating the legal and communications team, and the professional ethical rules that govern lawyers when speaking about ongoing conflict. Session 4: Whistleblowers - A plaintiff-side and defense-side lawyer discuss protections and pitfalls for individuals and employers under state and federal whistleblower statutes. Session 5: #MeToo, Part 2 - #MeToo is still alive and impacting how organizations hire, fire, and much of what happens in between the two.

Session 9: Combatting Hostile Environments: Risks of “Workplace Civility” Policies - Anti-harassment policies that prohibit only conduct that is strictly unlawful do not go far enough to guarantee a respectful workplace for employees.

Answer Bar: Maximizing Technology in Your Law Practice

Session 1: Competency, Confidentiality, Conflicts, and Technology - This session covers a wide range of problems that technology has created for lawyers. On the one hand, lawyers are obligated to use technology when it benefits their clients, but on the other, failure to use the technology competently can lead to ethical problems. This session analyzes issues from the mundane to the profound. Session 2: Technology Use and the Ethics that Come with It - The 2020 Covid 19 pandemic forced dramatic changes in practice styles, with most lawyers and their clients shifting from working in offices to working remotely from home.  Technology was at the center of these changes with “Zoom” meetings, “e-signing,” “e-filing” and related technologies playing an even more critical role in the practice of law. This panel of ethics experts will examine the issues raised by these practice shifts, including discussion of alternative technological methods of service in litigation and potential waiver of attorney-client privilege due to the misuse of technology. Session 3: Data Analytics: The Answer to Your Law Firm's Innovation Efforts - Learn how to easily kick-start your firm’s innovation efforts, close the gender pay gap (for you and your clients), and use data to reduce bias, improve inclusion as part of a diversity and inclusion initiative, and simultaneously use proven scientific methods to improve bottom-line profitability!  Session 4: Is Your Bot Bigoted?

Session 1: Recent Developments and Best Practices in Diversity and Inclusion - Review best practices in diversity and inclusion, with a specific focus on the evolving impact of the pandemic (health and racial). Session 2: Do Your Pay Equity Practices Support Your Policies of Diversity and Inclusion? - Many employers have announced great policies supporting diversity and inclusion for women and other protected classes, but have not checked to see if a pay equity analysis would show adherence to those policies. In the last few years, employers have faced increased litigation and loss of productivity due to claims that organizations still pay women and people of color less than white men for the same work—and these earnings gaps compound over time. Review how to address those issues in order to minimize risk and possibly improve morale and productivity.

Paying the Family Caregiver seemed more of a political statement than an informative session. The speaker on teacher/student relations needs to work on her "ummms" but otherwise informative.
