Lawyers advising corporate clients on labor and employment issues practice in a rapidly-changing environment, where human resources managers face an intensifying stream of new challenges, such as: 

  • The cutting edge of IT and work – robotics, artificial intelligence and block-chain technology
  • Employees as victims and perpetrators of cyber-theft, invasion of privacy and online defamation 
  • Evolving trends in employment litigation and regulation
  • Diversity in the workplace in an era of unprecedented demographic change
  • Impact of the legalization of marijuana on drug use and drug testing policies
  • Workplace security in a world of rising terror threats from home and abroad

We will explore and discuss changing legal and regulatory requirements, emerging technologies, and best practices in this very dynamic field.
