EEOC Cracks Down on Systemic Discrimination: What In-House and Employment Lawyers Need to Know to Minimize Risks in Hiring Practices

Program Number: 2307 Presenter: Jonathan T. Hyman, Esq.

While employers want to be able to hire the best and most qualified to staff every position, the myriad equal employment opportunity laws often intervene to roadblock these efforts. The enforcement priorities of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) are making these hiring decisions increasingly difficult for employers. For example, the EEOC recently issued new guidance for conducting criminal background checks during the hiring process that severely limit how and when employers can rely on criminal arrest and conviction records in making hiring and other employment decision. Other neutral criteria garnering a hard look by the EEOC include credit histories and employment status. In this program, especially for in-house and employment lawyers, Jon Hyman provides valuable insights to help identify and avoid the various risks that come with one of the EEOC’s highest enforcement priorities—systemic discrimination.

Service Levels in Information Technology Agreements and State of Indiana v. IBM Corp.: Important Legal Developments for Corporate and Technology Counsel

Program Number: 2252 Presenter: Matthew Karlyn, Esq. - Foley & Lardner, Aaron Tantleff, Esq.

Service levels are a critically important aspect of information technology agreements. While drafting appropriate service levels can be a challenging task as vendors and customers frequently struggle to set service levels appropriately and determine balanced remedies for service level failure, crafting good service levels is not enough. The parties and their attorneys also must think about and plan for additions to and deletions of service levels, as well as modifications to service levels, and how the agreement accommodates such changes. Further, adjustments to the service levels may become necessary at a later time and the agreement should include an appropriate process for ensuring that the actual service level changes as the quality of the vendor's service improves. Join Matt Karlyn and Aaron Tantleff of Foley & Lardner LLP as they discuss the recent case of State of Indiana v. IBM, where an IT service provider won a breach of contract claim

Cloud Computing in Healthcare: HIPAA and State Law Challenges: Important Considerations for Corporate, Healthcare and Technology Lawyers

Program Number: 2251 Presenter: M. Leeann Habte, Esq., Matthew A. Karlyn, Esq. - Cooley LLP

Health care organizations are rapidly moving their data and applications to the cloud. With the HITECH Act's incentives for electronic health records, hospitals, physician practices, and other providers are on the face track to implement new IT systems. Cloud computing offers the opportunity to achieve this objective quickly and with lower IT costs. However, transitioning to a cloud computing environment is not without significant risk. Hospitals, physician practices and other health care entities are subject to a myriad of privacy and security requirements under HIPAA and state laws, and these laws differ by jurisdiction. Counsel to hospitals and physicians must carefully negotiate business associate agreements with cloud computing vendors that include clear indemnity, security, and data use and data return provisions. Assuring the “cloud” is located in a U.S. jurisdiction and allocating responsibility for a data breach between the provider and cloud computing vendor are key issues in contracting
