Ban-the-Box and Other Pre-Employment Dilemmas: Finding Qualified Candidates without Finding Trouble

Program Number: 2507 Presenter: Natasha B. Dorsey, Esq., John L. Litchfield, Esq., Christopher G. Ward, Esq.

Finding qualified applicants for jobs is a constant challenge for employers for reasons going well past identifying individuals with the necessary skills, experience, training and education. Beyond finding strong candidates for particular positions, employers also have responsibilities to identify candidates who fit with a company’s culture, who will work well with others, and who will be trustworthy and help solve, rather than create, employment-related issues. As a result, many employers have adopted processes designed to identify latent issues with applicants, such as criminal history inquiries and background checks. While for many years employers took these steps with relatively limited legal restriction or government oversight, trends such as “ban-the box” are now sweeping across the country, and agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission are taking aggressive action to combat perceived areas for potential discrimination and unfairness in pre-employment inquiries. In this program of particular interest to in-house lawyers, Foley &

How In-House Counsel Can Be Ready for the Legal Issues that Arise Following a Credit Card Breach

Program Number: 2449 Presenter: David A. Zetoony, Esq.

The truth is that you can no more prevent a data breach than other types of crime against your organization such as robbery or theft. In-house counsel can have a huge impact, however, on the impact that a data breach has on an organization, including how quickly the organization identifies, investigates, and remediates a breach; how an organization communicates with partners, impacted individuals, regulators, and the media; whether the organization complies with contractual and regulatory obligations; and minimizing the potential for class actions and/or potential liability if litigation is filed. Join Bryan Cave partner David Zetoony, who examines 10 key legal documents which have an impact on an organization’s ability to effectively respond to a data breach and explains the significance of each document, how the document comes into play after a breach occurs, and what provisions within each document to be familiar with before a breach.

Taking the "Shhh" out of Trade Secrets: What Counsel Should Know about Protecting the "Secret Sauce"

Program Number: 2440 Presenter: Aaron Tantleff, Esq.

The concept of “trade secrets” and everything relating to them--defining what they are and how they can be used, who they can be shared with and how, understanding and valuing them, and protecting them from industrial espionage or misuse by departing employees—has always been somewhat nebulous in principle and even more so in practice. While most companies claim to have trade secrets, and need to protect those secrets to maintain their competitive advantages and unique elements, unless they are obvious secrets, such as the formula for Coca-Cola or “the Colonel’s” 11 herbs and spices, it can be difficult to document just what is a trade secret and the law will not necessarily recognize it as such. With the emergence of a worldwide economy, globalization, development of information networks capable of rapidly moving sensitive data, and the increased focus on new technology as a business driver, a company’s legal

Cyber-Insurance: Should In-House Counsel Consider Data Breach Insurance Legally and Practically Necessary?

Program Number: 2436 Presenter: David A. Zetoony, Esq.

“Data breaches” have become daily events and are consistently ranked by general counsel and corporate boards as one of the top five concerns impacting the business. In order to deal with this rising risk, companies are increasingly considering “cyber-insurance” policies as a solution, and are asking in-house counsel to help evaluate the benefit of these policies for mitigating— or ameliorating—the legal risks. While a good cyber-insurance policy can help mitigate the cost of a data breach, looking at the coverage limit alone can be very misleading. Following a data breach companies often discover that the insurance that they purchased does not cover, or only partially covers, the potential costs and legal liabilities that come with data security breaches. Join Bryan Cave partner David Zetoony, who provides valuable guidance for in-house counsel to (1) understand the types of data breaches that impact companies, (2) estimate the legal and defense costs that may
