NYC Bar Panel: Diversity In Employment Programs: Practical & Legal Issues with DEI Programs
This year’s Employment Law Institute will examine recent trends, developments, and cutting-edge issues in employment law. Topics to be discussed include implications of reasonable and religious accommodations during the COVID-19 pandemic, newly enacted/amended New York State and New York City Law, NLRB/Section 7 rights, and the bounds of “appropriate” workplace behavior, including political speech and #BLM. You will learn tips on how to navigate remote proceedings, including depositions, mediations, and trials, as part of this “new normal.” The Institute will also feature plenary sessions on diversity in employment programs, legal issues with Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programs, ethical obligations of remote work, and the security of confidential information. The panels will include esteemed in-house counsel, representatives from governmental agencies, and top practitioners from both the plaintiffs’ and defense bar.
