Psychological Issues in Employment Law 2015
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 motivate or impede resolution of disputes, including 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, mediators, members of the judiciary, forensic psychiatrists, and psychologists, to transcend the jargon, identify practical ways of working together, and to describe effective strategies to avoid, pursue and resolve litigation. They will address in a clear and pragmatic way key legal and ethical issues at the intersection of employment law and psychology.
Paul Hastings partner Stephen Sonnenberg is will open the program and speak on "Resolving, Mediating and Settling Emotionally Charged Disputes Before and During Litigation."
