Haynes and Boone, LLP presented Employment Law Food For Thought on March 3 in New York.

A failure to keep up with what's cooking in the workplace could land any employer in hot water. At the second annual Employment Law Food For Thought, leaders of Haynes and Boone's award-winning Labor and Employment Practice Group will provide you with the recipe to address the ethical dilemmas employers may face as result of the changing employment law landscape.

The interactive panel will be followed by a cooking demonstration by celebrity chef and television star Josh Capon, the chef behind such perennial hot spots as Lure Fishbar, El Toro Blanco, Sessanta, Burger & Barrel, and Bowery Meat Company. Guests will enjoy samples of Chef Josh's delicious cuisine, as well as a reception to meet Chef Josh, other in-house counsel, human resources professionals, business owners, and members of the Haynes and Boone team.

Topics include: 

  • Hiring pitfalls, including new laws on cyber-sleuthing, background checks and "ban-the-box" legislation 
  • Navigating the parameters of employer monitoring, such as social media, taping, private investigating, biometrics and GPS tracking 
  • Highlighting the next trends in discrimination lawsuits, including suits involving pay equity, transgender status, pregnancy, family responsibilities, unemployment, and "off-duty conduct" 

New to this year's event is a full hour of ethics CLE credit.
