#MeToo Take Two: Liability Beyond Title VII
Wednesday, August 22, 2018
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
A complaint is lodged. The employer completes its investigation, takes remedial action, and implements additional training. The complainant is satisfied with the response. The employer is done, right? Crisis averted?
Not quite. Beyond Title VII and other state discrimination law issues, the #MeToo moment has ushered in a host of other issues for Employment Counsel to consider. Under some circumstances, companies can face shareholder litigation, including Sarbanes Oxley liability, defamation and breach of privacy claims from the accused, as well as tangential pay equity and discrimination allegations. Add to this the onslaught of attacks on Non Disclosure Agreements in the tax code, as well as various state laws, and there is plenty to keep you busy beyond Title VII.
The Labor & Employment Committee and the Corporate and Association Counsel Division welcome Chicago members of the Federal Bar Association to a free presentation and Q&A session hosted by Rachel Cowen, Labor and Employment Attorney and partner at McDermott Will & Emery. Lunch will be provided.
Security – There will be a check-in table in the building’s main lobby. Please bring an ID to present to security.
Parking – There are several parking options nearby, including valet parking at 163 N. Canal St and a garage at 365 N. Jefferson (in the K Station apartment complex).
This event is sponsored by the FBA Labor & Employment Committee and the FBA Corporate and Association Counsel Division.
