Fresh off the challenges of the #MeToo era and a government shutdown, 2019 brings new uncertainties. The Department of Labor anticipates issuing new overtime regulations, Texas is now surrounded by states permitting medical or recreational marijuana, and employment litigation of all types continues to increase. In this seminar, the professionals at Cozen O’Connor will help you navigate the increasingly uncertain world of employment law, and provide practical advice to reduce the risks of litigation. In addition, we will be joined by a special luncheon speaker, Noel Kersh of Pathway Forensics, who will share tips and tools for the forensic examination of employee computers and smart phones and discuss ways of reducing/discouraging trade secret theft.
