Over the past several years, Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, along with general counsel guest speakers, has presented several Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) CLE presentations on an array of topics in the labor and employment field to its in-house counsel members. We are proud to once again partner with the ACC to provide two CLE programs in 2019. The programs will explore timely and topical labor and employment issues facing in-house counsel today.
The programs, led by Labor & Employment Chair and Restrictive Covenant Practice co-chair Laurent Drogin and Restrictive Covenant practice co-chair David Kleinmann, will be held on May 2, 2019 and October 22, 2019 from 8:30am to 11am (breakfast and networking from 8:30am to 9am and CLE program from 9 to 11am). Each program will provide 2.0 CLE credits in the Professional Practice category.
Our programs will be:
- Demand Letters: When to Run, When to Hide and When to Fight
May 2, 2019
Demand letters on employment law matters come in all shapes and sizes. Some present honest efforts to resolve potential claims; others are hyperbolic “nastygrams” intended to strong-arm a settlement. In this program, our speakers Laurent and David, who will be joined by an in-house counsel panelist, will use highlights from actual demand letters to discuss how they should be reviewed and assessed from a liability and damages perspective, and considerations on how, if at all, to respond. Among other topics, the program will cover decoding the issues, using the letter to either thwart or in anticipation of subsequent litigation, when and when not to label responsive communication “For Settlement Purposes Only” and common mistakes made when dealing with a demand letter.
- 2020 Foresight: Labor & Employment Law in the New Decade
October 22, 2019
The future is upon us. This program will explore current and emerging trends and topical issues in labor and employment law that can and should be anticipated in the upcoming decade. In this program, our speakers Laurent and David, who will be joined by an in-house counsel panelist, will cover what in-house counsel should be aware of and considering in the ever-evolving labor and employment law landscape.
