December 18: Webcast - If You're Not on Facebook You're Committing Malpractice #ethics #MCLE

Can you imagine cross-examining a witness about a telephone call if you'd never used a telephone before? It sounds ridiculous, but that's precisely where many attorneys find themselves today when it comes to social media. With most of the population now using one or more of these tools to communicate, it's increasingly dangerous for attorneys to blithely ignore social media and other developing technologies.
Lawyers who attend this webinar will learn about:

  • The growing number of ethics opinions addressing social media, and the obligation of attorneys to be familiar with them.
  • How to think about counseling clients on use of social media during a pending matter — and the attorney's own use.
  • The intersection between competency requirements and changes in law office technology.

November 20: Webcast - Employee Handbooks for 2015: Required Updates and Red Flags

A well-drafted employee handbook can be a key tool that employers have for communicating with employees about workplace policies, expectations, and other terms and conditions of employment. An outdated handbook, on the other hand, can be a legal liability, and perhaps just as dangerous as having no handbook at all. Join us for this all-new webinar, in which we'll walk you through the latest employment laws and regulations and explain how they may impact your policies and procedures. We'll cover new California laws for 2015, such as the new Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act (paid sick leave), plus other recent laws and developments from the courts, the EEOC and NLRB, and more. We'll also provide practical suggestions for handbook updates that will help protect your company in 2015 and beyond.
