CLICK ONLY THE ONLINE BUTTON TO ADD TO CART, IF THAT BUTTON IS NOT AVAILABLE, THE PROGRAM HAS NOT YET BEEN PRODUCED **** On November 8, 2018, the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor (DOL) rescinded the so-called “20% Rule,” which purported to segregate the duties of tipped employees between allegedly tip-generating duties and related non-tipped duties (sometimes referred to as a “side work”), and thereby limit the availability of the tip credit. The rule has been replaced with prior DOL guidance issued in 2009. Speakers Eric Magnus and Justin Barnes will discuss the new guidance, implications of this change for the service industry, and offer advice on how employers can assign work to tipped employees without jeopardizing use of the tip credit.

Subtle Harassment, Code Words and Implicit Bias: Proving Everyday Discrimination in Court

Program Number: 2921 Presenter: Taylor J. Crabill, Esq., Lawrence M. Pearson, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** For employment law practitioners, egregious and high-profile incidents and allegations are not the only matters that generate litigation. More subtle forms of bias are often central to sustaining or defending against a discrimination or harassment claim, as many cases do not include a “smoking gun” piece of evidence or an allegation that neatly fulfills the various requirements of a cause of action. Bias on the part of managers or coworkers also does not always present itself or cause harm in obvious, open ways. Federal and state courts have grappled with how facially neutral statements, particularly when combined with other evidence and unequal practices, may show workplace discrimination. Similarly, subtle, indirect and unwelcome sexual advances or other mistreatment can support harassment claims under the law. This presentation will discuss

Ethics and Employment Law: Who is the Client and is it you?

Program Number: 2919 Presenter: Patricia C. Collins, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** This seminar will review the ethics issues that arise for employment attorneys in representing an organization. It is inevitable that such a representation will result in close working relationships with executives and human resource employees that complicate the attorney-client relationship. Further, close involvement with the operations of the client or a particular decision regarding an employee may render the attorney a fact witness or simply too close to give good advice. Topics to be examined are: negotiating employee contracts, drafting policies that impact your client contact, termination or resignation of your client contract, attorneys as fact witnesses, attorneys as investigators, and maintaining professional distance.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** The exposure to Cyber threats for companies has escalated over the past 10 years. What was once a random act, simple hacking has grown into a wave of unstoppable organized crime. Firewalls are no longer a defense for the pinpoint accuracy of Spear Phishing. The criminals of the past that stole simple information and data have been replaced by massive attacks resulting in severe business interruption, ransom demands, and information/data destruction. Cyber security is a must, but more import is a Cyber Liability Insurance Policy which will cover your costs in the event of a Cyber Attack. There are many facets of Cyber-crime with its endpoint targets constantly changing, thus: the need for carefully designed coverages which can blend Cyber/Crime/Technology coverages to defend today’s electronic

Managing in the #MeToo Era: The Latest Legal Developments and Their Implications for Hospitality Employers

Program Number: 2852 Presenter: Jeffrey M. Landes

The #MeToo era is in full swing, and it shows no signs of abating anytime soon. For a host of reasons, the hospitality industry is a particularly vulnerable target of the movement, along with #TimesUp, #MeToo’s sister campaign, which is largely focused on providing sophisticated legal assistance to lower-wage workers with sex harassment claims. In addition, significant new and pending changes to New York State and New York City law—including the “Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act,” which takes effect on October 9, 2018—will impose substantial burdens on hospitality employers, making it all the more important that they have the most effective practices in place to prevent and respond to sex harassment in the workplace
