Ethics and Employment Law: Who is the Client and is it you?

Program Number: 2919

Program Date: 01/31/2019

Description

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date ****

This seminar will review the ethics issues that arise for employment attorneys in representing an organization. It is inevitable that such a representation will result in close working relationships with executives and human resource employees that complicate the attorney-client relationship. Further, close involvement with the operations of the client or a particular decision regarding an employee may render the attorney a fact witness or simply too close to give good advice. Topics to be examined are: negotiating employee contracts, drafting policies that impact your client contact, termination or resignation of your client contract, attorneys as fact witnesses, attorneys as investigators, and maintaining professional distance.
