Attendees will receive strategy on how to draft complaints, providing appropriate answers to their complaint as well as handling discovery requests, surviving summary judgement, and preparing for settlement and trial.
- The Perilous Practice of Parallel Proceedings in Employment Cases: Employment disputes often appear in several places at once. You may find that a disgruntled former employee has called OSHA, filed a discrimination charge with the EEOC, and is contesting the unemployment office's finding of ineligibility. Or you may discover that a Department of Labor investigation has now drawn the attention of the National Labor Relations Board. This session will outline strategies to handle employment disputes that appear in multiple forums at once, covering workers' compensation, agency investigations and sharing, and federal and state court litigation.
- Ethical Considerations in Client Intake: Evaluating and onboarding a new client is more than just a handshake (or a Zoom call). There are ethical considerations wrapped up in the conversations we have (or shouldn’t have) with prospective clients. This session will provide an overview of the ethical considerations raised by each step of the client intake process.
