Described as the oil of the digital world and even as sunshine (we keep using it, and it keeps regenerating), data is raising complex privacy questions with every new technology and platform, such as the metaverse. Concerned about sweeping “commercial surveillance,” the FTC Chair called for a paradigm shift on data privacy — expand policing of data abuse, move beyond the outdated notice and consent model, and impose new restrictions on data collection and use. New federal, state, and local legislation is rapidly emerging. The global picture also is changing as country after country adopts new privacy laws. Smart privacy risk management depends on not only knowing what the law is but also where it’s headed. Join us to delve into the top privacy pressure points raised by IoT and beyond, the latest US and global legal developments, and practical approaches to managing risk in what can feel like a multiverse of madness. (60 minute CLE.)

The Employee Handbook and Personnel Policies Program will feature Richard Simmons’ popular desk reference, the Employee Handbook And Personnel Policies Manual. It provides a unique examination of the state and federal laws that regulate personnel policies and employee handbooks. Mr. Simmons will discuss sample policies that can be of enormous value to employers in their efforts to avoid and defend wrongful discharge, leaves of absence, discrimination, wage-hour and other claims. Handbooks and personnel policies are viewed as legal documents. Most experts feel they are necessary. Yet, they create contractual and other legal obligations. In addition, because they are often introduced as evidence in legal disputes, it is essential that they be well drafted.
This seminar will examine the legal and practical issues associated with employee handbooks. It will discuss the proper approach to drafting policies that will implement employers’ objectives while safeguarding their interests.
