About

Join us for an engaging discussion on: • what happens when a background check on an employee comes back clean, but their social media suggests otherwise? Ethical implications can leave you scratching your head • the ethics of “attorney’s eyes only” agreements between counsel – take ‘em or leave ‘em? • are you up to speed on issues of accommodating employees who are neurodivergent? • can you really get sanctioned for doing an interview calling the defendant’s conduct “fraud”? maybe • friending judges on Facebook and elsewhere. Good idea? Bad idea?

When ICE Comes Knocking (and More): Employment and Immigration Law in the Trump Era
Mr. Freedman
Anyone who reads the news knows that immigration enforcement is on the rise under President Donald Trump’s administration. Increasingly, that has required employment law specialists to address issues affecting the employers they represent. We will discuss how to prepare employers for potential worksite investigations by ICE and USCIS. We will also educate attendees regarding the Department of Justice’s enforcement of unfair immigration related employment practices and reverse national origin claims. Delve into complications that multi-national employers face due to long wait times for employment-based work visas and the rise of “employment-based immigration litigation” as a potential solution. We will also provide updates regarding hot-button topics like the new “public charge” rule and the status of litigation regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) and temporary protected status (“TPS”) programs.

Social Media and Other Hot Topics for Public Sector Employees and Employers
Ms. Brown
The wide-spread use of social media presents unique issues for public sector employers, employees, and the unions representing public sector employees. We will deal with such issues as: when a public sector employer or employee can object to a member of the public taking photos and videos of employees for dissemination on social media; when a public sector employee can be disciplined for social media posting; and when a public sector employee can object to their image being used by the employer. Additionally, we will address other recent issues impacting public sector employment.
