In the evolving area of employment law, practitioners regularly face a number of ethical questions. Some of these questions are universal whiile others are more particular to this practice area. For example:

  • What issues must company counsel consider in deciding whether, and with what caveats, she can represent a company officer or employee who is named as a co-defendant in a discrimination suit?
  • What issues must plaintiffs' counsel consider in deciding whether and how to represent more than one co-plaintiff whose claims may not be equally strong, or whose settlement needs or wishes may differ?
  • May an attorney advise his client to tape conversations (and how does the opinion issued this past summer by the Association of the Bar of the City of New York on this subject impact the analysis of this question)?
  • What particular ethical issues arise (both for government counsel and for defense counsel) in proceedings before governmental agencies such as the EEOC, the State Division of Human Rights, or the City Commission on Human Rights -- where the claimant may incorrectly perceive the agency's counsel as his or her own attorney?

These are just a few of the ethical issues an employment law practitioner can expect to face. In many instances, knowing and planning for issues like these can prevent a situation that may require discontinuance of the representation. At this program, a panel of ethics experts and employment law practitioners examines these and other ethical questions that typically arise in this practice area through a series of hypotheticals, designed to give the practitioner tools for dealing with these issues in the real world.

Please note that this program will feature updated content and different hypotheticals from the program entitled 'Ethical Challenges in Employment Law' that was presented in 2002, and thus will entitle attendees to CLE credit even if they attended that previous program.
