Teleworking and Re-Opening and Vaccines, Oh My! (03/16/2021)

Program Number: 3170 Presenter: Crystal McElrath, Esq., Nichole Novosel, Esq.

In the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many employers have had to consider both the business and legal implications of ceasing operations versus shifting to telework versus attempting to continue in-person work. The introduction of COVID-19 vaccines adds additional questions regarding re-opening of workplaces. This webinar will address recent executive orders, federal legislation as well as guidance from the EEOC and OSHA regarding teleworking, re-opening, and vaccination of employees. Does the Americans with Disabilities Act protect employees at risk of contracting COVID-19? When should/must employers provide teleworking options? May/should employers require employees to be vaccinated? What liability might employers face with respect to requiring and/or administering the vaccine in order to re-open?

Program Number: 3162 Presenter: Mark Dubois, Esq., Jonathan Friedler, Esq.

The seminar will also discuss the current efforts being made to sanction such attorneys and will explore the line between unpopular – though protected – speech and punishable conduct.

Unnamed Class Member Standing: A Circuit-by-Circuit Analysis (03/04/2021)

Program Number: 3161 Presenter: Marissa Bañez, Esq.

Must unnamed class members have standing for a court to certify or enter judgment in a class action? The answer is far from straightforward, as the Supreme Court has not squarely decided the question and circuit courts address this issue in various – and sometimes contradictory – ways. Generally speaking, there are four broad categories into which circuit court cases fall: • De minimis or “some uninjured”: the potential presence of more than a small number of class members who lack standing may preclude class certification; • All-or-nothing: all class members must establish standing at some point in the litigation; • Standing of named plaintiff only: the standing of unnamed class members is irrelevant once standing of the named plaintiff is shown; and • No definitive decision: courts expressly state that they have not decided the issue. This presentation will discuss the various approaches employed by the circuit courts throughout the country so that attorneys can

Program Number: 3159 Presenter: Dr. Sharon Meit Abrahams, Eric J. Conn, Esq., Fern Fleisher-Daves, Esq.

In December 2020, two COVID-19 vaccines received emergency use authorization from the U.S. government and several more vaccines may be approved in the coming weeks. In the initial phases, front-line healthcare workers, nursing home residents, persons over 75 years of age, and others with underlying health conditions have been given first priority, but many employers are now devising programs to have their "essential workers" or all of their workers vaccinated as soon as possible. This discussion will address the OSHA and Labor & Employment law questions swirling around employer-driven vaccination policies and programs, including the legality of employer vaccine mandates, the grounds on which employees may decline the vaccine, and what effects the vaccine has on OSHA-required COVID-19 protocols in the workplace.

The Storming of the Capitol: What are the criminal, civil and employment consequences? (01/29/2021)

Program Number: 3150 Presenter: Thomas D. Bever, Esq., Amy E. Buice, Esq., Matthew W. Clarke, Esq., Anthony L. Cochran, Esq.

It will be ironic if Donald J. Trump is not prosecuted because of his First Amendment protections, but the rioters (who did exactly what they thought Trump wanted them to do) are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Did Donald J. Trump incite a riot? Did his words give the rioters a defense based on his apparent authority as the President of the United States and the Commander in Chief? What are all of the criminal, civil and employment consequences for the rioters? What can employers of the rioters and protesters do?

Social Media and the Lifecycle of the Attorney/Client Relationship (03/08/2021)

Program Number: 3145 Presenter: Dr. Sharon Meit Abrahams, Jan L. Jacobowitz, Esq., Lucian T. Pera, Esq.

Social media has become an integral part of our society. The Pew Research Center reports that approximately 70% of the adult population uses social media, and it even impacts the lives of those who elect not to engage. Lawyers’ clients are awash in social media, so it is no surprise that every stage of the life cycle of an attorney-client relationship may involve a lawyer’s need not only to explore the social media terrain, but also to understand both the benefits and dangerous landmines that await the uninformed. Join our discussion with two seasoned legal ethics lawyers to explore both the necessity of employing social media and the potential ethical perils of lawyers on social media. Topics include the use of social media in advertising; investigating all aspects of a case from a potential client’s claim to discovering information about the opposing parties, witnesses, jurors, and judges; and finally,
