Not Strictly Legal

Practical Non-Legal Lessons Learned from Employment Litigation


Session Description

This practical, yet humorous, presentation will focus on lessons employers can learn from lawsuits alleging discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and trade secret theft. But let's be honest...sometimes those lessons are not always purely legal in nature! This session will explore the consequences of these lessons by learning what causes employees to file lawsuits in the first place, what the employer could have done to avoid being sued, and what causes juries to find employers guilty.
