Employment Law Institute: Bias Studies in the Legal Profession
This session is based on bias studies conducted with law firms and legal professionals. You’ll learn the results of these fascinating studies and how unknowing bias can affect the careers of lawyers. You’ll also learn helpful tips for improving the feedback given to younger lawyers in your firms and how it can make a positive difference for them.

Employment Law Institute: Using Social Media and the Internet to Screen Job Applicants – "Dos" and "Don’ts"
Can an employer deny an offer of employment based upon a candidate’s photos or posts on social networking sites? The answer to this question is not simple. Presenters discuss what employers should and should not do when combing through an applicant’s background using the Internet and social networking sites and the consequences if not completed carefully.
– Howard L. Bolter; Bolter Law
– Cynthia A. Bremer; Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart PC

12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Employment Law Institute: Is Your Workplace Prepared for Changing LGBTQ+ Demographics and Potential Legal Expansions?

Recent years have seen an increased societal and legal focus on the equity rights of LGBTQ+ individuals. This and the impact of online connections and support are leading to an increase in the population of openly LGBTQ+ individuals that are or will soon be in the workforce. Federal law remains highly unsettled as to LGTBQ+ workplace protections, but federal courts around the country are continuing to be asked to decide whether federal sex discrimination laws protect LGBTQ+ individuals from sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination.

Apart from federal law, a minority of states – including Minnesota – already prohibit such discrimination. This session will focus on an overview of changing workplace demographics, the current legal landscape around LGBTQ+ workplace rights, and best practices for employers focused on offering a non-discriminatory and inclusive work environment.

– Megan L. Anderson; Gray Plant Mooty

Wednesday, July 10, 2019
2:00 – 3:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Employment Law Institute: Arbitration – Challenges, Pros and Cons, and Policy Provisions
In this presentation, presenters will explore the challenges plaintiffs typically assert when confronting a motion to compel arbitration and the most effective ways for a corporate defendant to respond. But, be careful what you wish for – is arbitration truly a superior forum to a court? Presenters also will cover the pros and cons of arbitration, and (for those companies desirous of establishing an arbitration policy) the key provisions that should be included in an arbitration policy to ensure enforceability.
– Roy A. Ginsburg; Jones Day
– Andrew D. Peters; Wells Fargo  

Tuesday, July 16, 2019
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Employment Law Institute: Minnesota OSHA – Inspections, Citations and the Prudent Employer’s Response
Minnesota OSHA inspections and citations frequently arise amidst the harried and stressful days immediately following a workplace injury. This session will provide practical information to guide employers through the investigation, help them anticipate the citations and penalties that may result and identify the strongest available defenses.
– Martin D. Kappenman; Seaton Peters & Revnew PA

Tuesday, July 16, 2019
2:00 – 3:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Employment Law Institute: Litigating a Breach of Duty of Loyalty Claim
Employers are increasingly asserting claims against former employees for breach of their common law duty of loyalty. This presentation will address questions including: What is an employee’s duty of loyalty? What is the measure of damages for a breach? Are injunctions a viable remedy? Is there a difference between fiduciary duty and duty of loyalty? Can a third party be liable for aiding and abetting? Can the claim be preempted by the Trade Secrets Act? What defenses can be asserted to this claim?
– V. John Ella; Trepanier, MacGillis, Battina PA

12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Employment Law Institute: Cybersecurity 101 – Identifying Risks, Developing Policies and Procedures, and Responding to Threats 

While not always associated with cybersecurity or IT, HR professionals are a key player in protecting a company’s data. In fact, the data maintained by HR is often the information most vulnerable to a cyber-attack, such as SSNs, birthdays, bank account information, etc. This highly-sensitive personal information was at the center of the Equifax data breach, which to date has cost the company hundreds of millions of dollars. How protected should this data stored, who has access to it, and what precautions must be taken to secure it? 

HR plays a key role in answering these questions by developing, implementing, and communicating company-wide security policies. HR acts as a conduit between the IT security department and staff by clarifying policies, ensuring employees receive security trainings, and identifying and hiring IT personnel to recognize and anticipate the potential information security issues.
