A Shot in the Arm: The Employment and OSHA Law Implications of COVID-19 Vaccination Programs (03/15/2021)

Program Number: 3159 Presenter: Dr. Sharon Meit Abrahams, Eric J. Conn, Esq., Fern Fleisher-Daves, Esq.

In December 2020, two COVID-19 vaccines received emergency use authorization from the U.S. government and several more vaccines may be approved in the coming weeks. In the initial phases, front-line healthcare workers, nursing home residents, persons over 75 years of age, and others with underlying health conditions have been given first priority, but many employers are now devising programs to have their "essential workers" or all of their workers vaccinated as soon as possible. This discussion will address the OSHA and Labor & Employment law questions swirling around employer-driven vaccination policies and programs, including the legality of employer vaccine mandates, the grounds on which employees may decline the vaccine, and what effects the vaccine has on OSHA-required COVID-19 protocols in the workplace.

Program Number: 3144 Presenter: Alexander Alfano, Esq., Michelle Divelbiss, Esq., Chad Landmon, Esq.

Over the past year, industries all over the world have experienced disruptions and have been forced to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic. Notably, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has been thrust to the forefront of the battle against COVID-19, and emergency use authorizations (“EUAs”) and Operation Warp Speed are now hot topics. EUAs have allowed FDA to pivot and make speedy decisions that help save lives, but EUAs aren’t without their pitfalls. Additionally, Operation Warp Speed has been an impressive scientific endeavor, helping to bring vaccines to market in record time. As FDA has adapted quickly to the most up to date knowledge about this novel virus and changing scientific data, including real world evidence, what is in store for 2021? A new administration begins on January 20, 2020, and this new administration will bring different goals and plans for fighting COVID-19. Looking to 2021, we will see whether FDA’s operations

Weeding between the Ethical Lines: Cannabis and Conflicts (02/10/2021)

Program Number: 3120 Presenter: Dr. Sharon Meit Abrahams, Rachel K. Gillette, Esq., Jan L. Jacobowitz, Esq.

The Cannabis industry continues to grow not only increasing revenue and consumer use, but also creating issues throughout the country for lawyers advising clients. As the states continue to weave a patchwork quilt of cannabis regulations and the federal government continues to list cannabis as an illegal controlled substance, entrepreneurial clients need complex legal advice and lawyers need clear ethics advice on permissible representation of their clients. May a lawyer assist a client in establishing a dispensary? May the lawyer take an interest in a cannabis start up in lieu of fees? What are the tax implications for clients operating in multiple states? What are the possible repercussions for a lawyer using cannabis for recreational or medicinal purposes? These questions and more will inform this interesting and timely discussion.

Ethically Dealing with Substance Abuse and Addiction in the Legal Profession (12/15/2020)

Program Number: 30276 Presenter: Joan Bibelhausen, JD

Studies show that lawyers are at greater risk for alcohol and other substance use disorders, depression, other mental illness, and stress than members of other professions or the general population. This stress has been exacerbated in 2020 as lawyers are on the front lines in our nation’s crises and major events. There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for addiction and mental illness. By understanding lawyer stress, this continuum, and the facts about addiction and mental illness, lawyers can reduce their risk, encounter fewer ethical challenges, and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a problem. Signs, symptoms, risk factors and recovery regarding these problems will be presented. The discussion will include competence (1.1), diligence (1.3), communication (1.4) and other ethical considerations and the program will offer timely tools to reduce risk as well as information on lawyer assistance programs and other resources.

The Intersection Between Law & Medicine (11/05/2020)

Program Number: 30274 Presenter: Clifford A. Rieders, Esq.

This subject is a culmination of many years’ lecturing on the subject of law and medicine and how the two interact. Subjects covered include peer review; risks and complications; the value of good bedside manners; how to avoid medical malpractice; what to do about obstructive and difficult conduct; and many other areas. The course is useful not only to lawyers, but also healthcare professionals. The concept is that, except for a few physicians, much of what occurs in the law is alien to the medical profession. Likewise, lawyers have some difficulty in understanding the medical world. There is an intersection between these two fields based upon the requirement to work together on behalf of patients, medicine and the legal system. This seminar is intended to explore some of those topics in a novel, interesting and thoughtful manner.
