January 24: Gender Discrimination and Harassment in the #MeToo Era

The #MeToo movement has cast a spotlight on sexual harassment in the workplace. That spotlight is shaping public opinion, which in turn, is influencing the best practices employers follow, as well as the policies they implement. Partially in response to these changes, but also independently paralleling them, a host of legal developments have occurred in the past few years that amount to a sea-change in the legal landscape surrounding gender discrimination and harassment. These changes are all noteworthy, and in some cases, momentous. This webinar will examine recent legal developments and explore the best practices employers must follow to reduce the legal risks these new laws present.
Miller Law Group invites you and any of your interested colleagues to attend this web seminar free of charge.
All you need is a computer with Internet access and speakers.

    January 23: The End of Sanctions?

    Following the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the amount of cases involving spoliation sanctions has plummeted. Today, cases involving discovery sanctions are only one third as common as they were during their peak in 2011 and 2012.

    Are we seeing the end of sanctions? And if so, what effects is this having on the legal practice?

    Join Logikcull and eDiscovery experts Craig Ball and Mira Edelman as we explore these topics, including a review of extensive new research on eDiscovery sanctions post-2015, key case laws, and emerging corporate discovery trends.

    Novel constitutional issues have emerged in the first two years of Donald Trump's presidency, implicating issues as diverse as private paramilitary violence, immigration, and the protection of sensitive voter information in the digital age. In response, creative legal challenges have put before state and federal courts across the country new questions about where constitutional protections begin and end. Joshua Geltzer, Executive Director and Visiting Professor of Law at Georgetown's Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection, will discuss constitutional lawyering in the age of Trump, including the Institute's efforts to use the power of the courts to defend key constitutional rights.

    January 28: Skeletons in the Closet - The Importance of Due Diligence

    Failure to conduct proper due diligence can mean billions in unwanted costs to your organization or your client. Due diligence can be a legal obligation, but the term more commonly applies to voluntary investigations designed to uncover hidden bad acts. It is imperative that attorneys understand and appreciate the potential risks presented by third parties. Effective due diligence investigations contribute to informed decision making by enhancing the amount and quality of information available to decision makers and by ensuring that this information is systematically used to make the best choices based on cost, benefit, and risk.

    In this CLE, learn about the purpose, legal requirements and recent developments for due diligence. Hear about organizational strategies to strengthen due diligence efforts and mitigate financial or operational risk. Attorneys from any size organization and any practice area will benefit.

    After completing this course, you will be able to:

    • Learn about the importance of understanding third parties for effective decision making
    • Understand key concepts and components critical to successfully conducting due diligence
    • Review specific laws that require due diligence
    • Discuss the legal penalties and financial risks when due diligence fails

    January 17+23: Marijuana in the Workplace: An Update and a Look Forward

    Twenty three states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana in some form and a few more have decriminalized it. Four of these states and DC have legalized marijuana for recreational use as well as medical use. However, marijuana remains illegal under federal law and employers, regardless of whether or not marijuana is legal, likely will not want their employees using it at work. During this program we will provide an overview of current marijuana laws, trends in the medical industry, and insight into how changing times will likely impact our current, drug-free workplaces.

    February 21: The Path to Lawyer Well Being & Conscious Inclusion

    This program - The Path to Lawyer Well Being & Conscious Inclusion - comes in two parts.
    Program #1: The Path to Lawyer Well Being
    Too many in our profession are too exhausted, too impaired or too disengaged to develop into their best selves. Many find themselves in a profession drained of civility and compassion and plagued by chronic stress, poor self-care, and high rates of depression and alcohol problems.
    The result is that the legal profession may not be living up to its full potential as an institution in which attorneys can thrive, best serve their clients and contribute to a better society. Further, recent research demonstrates that lawyers are far more likely to suffer from substance use and mental health disorders compared to other professions and the public as a whole. What can we do and how do we create a movement of change towards improving the health and well-being of the legal profession?
    This program discusses practical steps that can be taken by lawyers, law firms, bar associations, judges, legal educators and regulatory counsel to shift the legal culture from one that can be self-destructive to one that focuses on the well-being that is expected by all those who look to the legal system for justice. In addition, participants also will learn ways to foster healthy lifestyles within their practice settings as well as how to implement some stress-reduction techniques at home and in the workplace in examining best practices for promoting healthy lives in the legal profession.
    Program #2: Conscious Inclusion
    Implicit bias occurs in every aspect of the law – from the courtroom to the law firm to legal non-profit organizations. It is a daily challenge to consciously include those who deserve to be part of the picture. The Illinois Supreme Court IPI Civil Jury Committee promulgated a new instruction for civil jury trials in Illinois on implicit bias in May 2018, recognizing that we “all have feelings, assumptions, perceptions, fears, and stereotypes about others. Some biases we are aware of and others we might not be fully aware of, which is why they are called implicit biases or ‘unconscious biases.’” Additionally, it warns that “our biases” often affect how we act, favorably or unfavorably, toward someone. Bias can affect our thoughts, how we remember, what we see and hear, whom we believe or disbelieve, and how we make important decisions. Illinois is the seventh state to require MCLE on the elimination of bias. The terms surrounding this issue hold no universal definition, and our panel of various experts in this field will discuss what these issues mean in the context of various institutions, interest groups and legal entities.
    Our speakers will discuss a “how-to” in these various areas and how diversity can be meaningful. It is the moral thing to do. It’s the right thing to do. And it’s even good for business. The first step, though, is understanding implicit bias and recognizing when it may be permeating your decisions. Hypotheticals will be discussed as well as ways to reduce implicit bias and how diversity and inclusion can become part of one’s everyday life in this one-hour interactive, lively discussion.

    January 8: Form I-9 & E-Verify: What You Need to Know in 2019

    New year, new audits? Likely so. 2019 will likely see more worksite audits as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to continue its onslaught of Form I-9 audit notices and inspections throughout the United States.
    As HR and compliance managers know , completing a Form I-9 involves sifting through numerous gray areas of the law and interpreting often-conflicting instructions. The trouble is, even minor “paperwork” violations can land employers in hot water for non-compliance.
    In this webcast, John Fay, LawLogix’s president and general counsel, and Annie Cleveland, corporate director of human resources compliance at Station Casinos, will cover what you really need to know in 2019 related to Form I-9 and E-Verify compliance as well as strategies for assessing hiring policies and implementing critical changes before ICE comes knocking on the door. They will discuss:
    • Industry updates and the perfect storm of immigration enforcement
    • Recap of ICE Worksite enforcement numbers and the revised “penalty matrix”
    • E-Verify update related to the National Law Enforcement Tracking System
    • The return of Social Security no-match letters
    • Essential I-9 strategies and best practices for “cleaning house” in 2019
    • Practical approach for managing and addressing historical I-9s
    • Form I-9 & E-Verify sample policies and procedures document
    As a bonus for attending the webcast, attendees will receive a Form I-9 Policies and Procedures sample document to aid in their compliance strategies for 2019.
