Increasingly, Plaintiff attorneys are tacking on defamation and privacy claims to the discrimination lawsuits they file on behalf of their clients. In this session, led by Doug Currier, we will explore the theories behind these claims and how Plaintiffs’ counsel exploit these theories to gain leverage in a lawsuit. We will also discuss what employers can do to mitigate the risks associated with these claims which arise out all aspects of the employment relationship including hiring practices, workplace investigations, termination decisions and reference policies.

A complimentary light breakfast will be provided for on-site attendees.
