Biometrics and the Law: How the CCPA Fits into the Bigger Picture (11/22/2019)

Program Number: 29193 Presenter: Susan Fahringer, Esq., Nicola Menaldo, Esq., Sari Ratican, Esq., Anna Mouw Thompson, Esq.

Commercial applications for biometric data have become increasingly cost effective and prevalent in recent years. Companies now commonly use eye scans, finger scans, or facial recognition technology to prevent fraud or facilitate secure transactions, and newer uses range from facilitating airport security screens to recognizing facial features and emotions for the visually impaired. States across the country have responded by enacting or proposing legislation specific to biometrics. One of the enacted statutes, the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act, can easily expose companies to millions of dollars in per-violation damage awards. Other states regulate the collection and use of biometric data through general privacy laws that encompass biometric data. The California Consumer Protection Act is an example of this: the protections of the CCPA cover “personal information” of California residents, including biometric data. Companies that collect, use, or store biometric data should be aware of the legal landscape so they can

New Gender Pay Gap Laws: Employers Take Note (11/01/2019)

Program Number: 29189 Presenter: Kathleen Caminiti, Esq., Denise Visconti, Esq.

Concerns about pay inequality have intensified greatly in recent years. Politicians, media and the public are voicing strong opposition to employers paying women, and other historically marginalized groups, less for the same or substantially similar work. Pay equity laws are expanding, and protections in New York, California, and other locations significantly exceed federal regulations. Class action lawsuits focused on fair pay are increasing, and negative publicity can hurt employee recruiting, retention and customer relationships. In New York, with liquidated damages of 300% and a 6-year statute of limitations, pay equity suits may just be too hard for plaintiffs’ lawyers to resist. This webcast will discuss: • A brief overview of the history of equal pay legislation • An update on recent judicial and legislative developments in this area • Compliance guidelines and recommendations for dealing with this rapidly evolving area of the law “Pay equality is one of the biggest issues our nation faces.” –

2019: A Year of Dramatic Changes for Mandatory Employment Arbitration (10/24/2019)

Program Number: 29188 Presenter: Heather Weine Brochin, Esq., Michael Dell, Esq.

With the support of federal law, which generally favors arbitration in the employment context, employers regularly craft and rely upon broad arbitration provisions and agreements. In 2019, however, employers looking to rely on mandatory arbitration provisions confronted new questions presented by state legislatures, courts of law, and perhaps most importantly, public opinion. The contrast between clear federal support for arbitration of employment disputes, and a recent public backlash against the process, has led some legislatures try to limit mandatory arbitration. In this program, we will dive into federal authorization of mandatory arbitration agreements, the rise new challenges to mandatory arbitration, and some of 2019’s positive court decisions for employers.

Program Number: 29186 Presenter: Victoria Dorum, Esq., Charles Mondora, Esq.

They will also explain why decentralized identity systems, based on technologies such as blockchain, are the future of all identity management and examine how decentralized identity fits into the current legal privacy framework and its key objectives.
