Trevor Cloak, Michael Hanlon, and Chanel Lattimer will be presenting at the ACC Greater Philadelphia In-House Counsel Conference. Trevor and Chanel will be presenting together on "From Instagram Takeovers to User-Generated Content: Analyzing Intellectual Property Issues arising in Social Media." Social media is often on the cutting edge of legal issues, but these issues aren’t always very obvious. The law is largely the same, but the application of it to the ever-evolving world of social media can be murky and, at times, hazardous. This session will take an in-depth look at current legal issues facing companies utilizing social media. While this discussion will include IP issues, it will go broader and beyond the basics. Michael will be joining a panel discussing "Ensuring Pay Equity: A Practical Guide to Address Urgent Issues." More and more states have been paying greater attention to pay equity in workplaces. Perhaps you have heard that your competitors are being sued for alleged pay discrimination based on gender. As a result, you have become quite interested in conducting a pay audit. The panel will talk about how to proceed with such an audit, discussing potential pay equity issues using hypothetical data. Attendees will discuss the potential problems that they have discovered and what they have done to address these issues. They will discuss potential ways to adjust pay rates for a group of employees and times when no pay adjustments are advised. In addition, the panel will discuss why pay adjustments have different impacts on the overall pay differences between men and women.
