Ethical Issues in Employment Law

1h 1m

Created on September 14, 2020





This course, presented by employment attorney Jeffrey Campolongo, will walk through various ethical issues that arise in the practice of employment law. Common ethical questions that arise in the employment context will be addressed, along with general issues that attorneys in all practice areas might encounter. Examples of scenarios to be discussed include the following:

  • What happens when a background check on an employee comes back clean but their social media suggests otherwise? Ethical implications can leave you scratching your head.

  • The ethics of "attorney's eyes only" agreements between counsel – take 'em or leave 'em?

  • Can you really get sanctioned for doing an interview calling the defendant's conduct "fraud"? 

  • Friending judges on Facebook and elsewhere. Good idea? Bad idea?

This program will provide the answers to all of these legal and ethical quandaries, and more.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify many of the ethical challenges that commonly arise in employment law

  2. Review how to respond appropriately when these ethical questions arise so that you do not find your case - or career - in a legal quagmire

  3. Explore the ethical do's and don'ts when engaged in common negotiation or litigation scenarios
