Retaliation and Whistleblowing January 30, 2016

unnamed

Charles Lamberton will be co-presenting a session at national NELA’s Spring Convention this April in Boston.  Charles’s session will address how various types of emerging technology, including social media in all of its forms, have become integral to the way that many of our clients, their co-workers, and supervisors communicate both inside and outside the workplace.

Social media and other forms of electronic communication can be a powerful organizing tool, but their use may open employees up to retaliatory actions. Understanding the depth, breadth, and nature of a client’s or potential client’s online presence at as early a stage as possible is vital to representing them effectively. We will review the standards for determining which forms of online communication could also qualify as protected activity, which types and forms of electronic communication should be avoided, and what to be on the lookout for in terms of defense tactics designed to turn employees’ online activity against them.

The National Employment Lawyers Association is the country’s largest professional organization that is exclusively comprised of lawyers who represent individual employees in cases involving employment discrimination and other employment-related matters.  NELA and its 69 state and local affiliates have more than 4,000 members.
