Employment investigations and litigation are ethics minefields for attorneys. The underlying matters often involve highly sensitive personnel decisions by managers, interactions between supervisors and employees, and/or disputes among employees. For attorneys, these matters involve potential conflicts of interest, confidentiality, privacy issues in investigations, all of which can have a material impact on later litigation. Other ethical issues specially arise if the attorney is in-house counsel. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to identifying ethics issues in employment practice, including issues in pre-trial investigations involving social media searches, confidentiality of sensitive personnel issues, conflicts of interest and waivers, and ethics in discovery practice.

• Joint representations – conflict management and waivers
• Ex parte communications – rules for current v. former employees
• Informal investigations – privacy, notice and consent issues
• Social media searches and employee use of work devices for personal use
• Discovery issues – what information can be ethically discovered and used in litigation?
• Special ethical considerations for in-house counsel

William Freivogel is the principal of Freivogel Ethics Consulting and is an independent consultant to law firms on ethics and risk management.  Mr. Freivogel is a graduate of the University of Illinois (Champaign), where he received his B.S. and LL.B.
