Agenda and Session Topics

When the In-House Lawyer is the “Whistleblower”
3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Defending “whistleblower” retaliation claims brought by in-house counsel brings many unique hurdles. This session will cover ethical—and other limitations—on in-house counsel’s ability to acquire, produce and/or use privileged and confidential information; application of the Rules of Professional Conduct and other attorney ethical obligations; legal issues regarding protected activity; and potential discovery-related issues. We will also provide practical considerations for litigating and resolving such claims.
 
Recognizing and Interrupting Unconscious Biases in the Workplace
4:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Do you have a bias against unconscious bias? While racial slurs and “women’s work” have become thankfully less common in the 50 years since Title VII was enacted, unfortunately discrimination in less explicit forms remains, and is increasingly on the radar of the EEOC and the courts. “Implicit bias,” also referred to as “unconscious bias,” may expose your company to liability, especially in today’s employment environment. This session will cover the developing legal and business focus of unconscious bias and why employers should care about it. Learn about the developing role of unconscious bias and help your company avoid the unintentional discriminatory behaviors that create exposure today.
