Employers of every size and in every industry face employment law challenges. These issues present risks and often divert management’s attention from other important business matters. In these interactive sessions, participants will learn about the latest legal developments from seasoned labor and employment lawyers, and explore ways they may avoid liability by developing preventive strategies.

Few employers contemplate how their actions toward employees would look to a jury. Yet, jurors often decide cases based fairness, likeability, and the reasonableness of the people involved.  When plaintiff’s counsel evaluate whether to accept a case and what amount of resources to devote to it, jury appeal is a crucial factor. This program will explain how juries view employment decisions, and, more importantly, how you can avoid making your company an attractive target to plaintiff’s counsel. Learn how you can limit exposure if you end up in front of a jury, and find out the truth about some common trial strategy “myths.”

Who Should Attend?
Jackson Lewis welcomes all corporate decision-makers with employee relations responsibilities, human resource executives and professionals, in-house counsel, chief executive officers and financial executives.
