The #MeToo Minefield: From Privilege to Punitives

Live Webinar

Online via WebEx

On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., the Blank Rome Joint Task Force on Sexual Harassment will present a dynamic multi-disciplinary webinar that will cover ways to prepare, respond, and handle the many facets—and some minefields—of a #MeToo matter at a company.

Partners Susan Bickley and Jason Reisman from our Labor & Employment practice group, Yelena Barychev from our Corporate group, Linda Kornfeld from our Insurance Recovery group, and Mark Lee from our White Collar Defense & Investigations group will discuss:

  • The role of the Board of Directors in light of the #MeToo Movement: actions to take prior to and during a #MeToo moment;
  • How to handle internal investigations, including being prepared for criminal implications and police involvement;
  • Insurance recovery considerations and best practices: yes, you may have insurance even for punitive damages claims;
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements: is the age of NDAs over;
  • The many facets of retaining counsel for companies as well as employees: a potential ethics and privilege minefield;
  • The extent of workplace and employment law changes made in the wake of #MeToo; and
  • Whether and what additional changes should be made.
