Jackson Lewis Partners to Discuss Corporate Responsibility Standards at SHRM Annual Conference

  • June 16, 2003

Organizations have been newly charged with establishing workplace policies and practices governing corporate responsibility. Attendees of SHRM's 55th Annual Conference & Exposition, held June 22-25 in Orlando, will have an opportunity to learn more about this timely issue in a presentation given by Jackson Lewis attorneys Lynn Outwater managing partner of the firm's Pittsburgh office, and Michael J. Lotito partner in the firm's San Francisco office. In HR's Role in Setting Standards of Corporate Responsibility, they will discuss with attendees the legal framework within which HR professionals should develop workplace policies and practices to educate and mentor employees about acceptable standards of responsibility at work.

Human resources professionals can lead organizations in formulating training, influencing communication and creating mentoring programs on the standards for acceptable behavior and the consequences of unacceptable behavior or violations of corporate standards. This session will cover relevant case law and statutes, including the recent Sarbanes Oxley Act, on the legal ramifications of misbehavior in a corporate setting for publicly traded corporations.

For more information on the session scheduled for Monday, June 23 from 10:45 a.m. until Noon, visit the SHRM website.
