Session I – AI and Predictive Analytics Are Changing HR and Recruiting: The Risks and Rewards

Amazing things can be done with AI/predictive analytics and their use has boomed in HR.  80% of companies use some form of AI/predictive analytics in their HR functions.  This collision of mathematics, psychology, and industrial relations is known as People Analytics.  

The main risks in using these tools in HR is hidden bias and disparate impact and we are starting to see some regulatory bodies taking bold steps to address the problem of bias and algorithms.  The EEOC released guidance regarding the use of AI tools in employment.  Some states proposed laws regulating the use of AI in employment.  Congress is considering the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA).  

Our presentation will focus on the new, emerging landscape of AI, employment law, compliance with NY Local Law 144 and the copycat laws that will surely follow as well as cross-border implications for those doing business internationally.

Session II – Work from Anywhere: Remote/Hybrid Work and Nationwide Compliance

Employees are insisting on remote and hybrid work arrangements. They enjoy the flexibility, work/life balance, and even the ability to move to other states throughout the country.  These arrangements, however, are posing significant legal challenges for employers whether it is the impact of varying state laws or involving tracking overtime, family leave, or remote workforce monitoring.  This program will identify these challenges and provide strategies for handling these concerns.

Session III - It’s Time For Me to Fly!  Avoiding Nasty Restrictive Covenant Entanglements

The market is hot, people are on the move, and restrictive covenants are in play.  What can employers do during the recruiting process to avoid the potential chaos associated with restrictive covenants, trade secrets, and related employment issues? How does the FTC’s recent announcement impact the unfair competition landscape, if at all?  This session provides an FTC update and explores the strategies from both the plaintiff and defense sides, including planning and executing strategic attorney-client privileged communications, drafting critical at-hire agreements, preserving information, protecting the C-suite in potential litigation, shoring up practices and policies to ensure protection of confidential and trade secret information, preparing a coordinated exit process (especially for high-level departures), developing a communications/public relations plan, and managing litigation.
