PLI's Psychological Issues in Employment Law 2014
Psychological issues in employment law are both unavoidable and fascinating. They help to determine counsels’ day-to-day advice regarding a variety of employment issues, play a central role in litigation, shape damages analyses, and impact significantly the intensity and duration of employment lawsuits. Psychological issues often are at the core of incentivizing employees, negotiating workplace disputes or trying an employment claim to a jury. Yet attorneys and mental health professionals struggle too often to speak the same language.
PLI's program brings together prominent practitioners from the management and plaintiffs’ bars, in-house counsel and the EEOC, forensic psychiatrists, and psychologists to transcend the jargon, identify practical ways of working together, and to describe effective litigation strategies and tactics. They will address in a clear and pragmatic way key legal and ethical issues at the intersection of employment law and psychology.
Paul Hastings Employment Law partner Stephen Sonnenberg is the Chairperson of the program and will open the event, and Paul Hastings Employment Law partner Zachary Fasman is a featured panelist who will adress "Ethical Issues and Professional Responsibilities."
