- WEBCAST Thursday, November 3, 2016The Bigger Picture With On-Board Technology
Today is the era of on-board technology. This program will focus on the risks created by real time data, and the proactive measures motor carriers need to implement to reduce exposure in litigation. Motor carrier fleets are increasingly becoming more advanced, with state of the art technology providing trucking companies with streams of real time data every second. The advances with on-board technologies, however, are not without risks, as motor carriers are learning that with real time data come new challenges regarding how companies manage and respond to the wealth of information contained by real time data.
- WEBCAST Wednesday, November 9, 2016And Anti-Retaliation Regulations
Ms. Kemp will provide an overview of the new OSHA regulations and requirements for electronic reporting, detailing who is required to report electronically, what information must be submitted, and when reporting must occur. She will also highlight the breadth of the updated anti-retaliation regulations and offer strategies to prepare for the impact of the new regulations on workplace drug testing policies and safety incentive programs. Under the final rule, OSHA may issue citations to companies with post-accident drug testing policies and safety incentive programs that it regards as deterring employees from reporting injuries and illnesses. This webinar offers the information and guidance needed to assist employers to ensure that their policies and programs will be in compliance when these regulations go into effect later this year.

We will also discuss how law firms can control their brands and encourage use of new and emerging online tools to market the firm’s services, attorneys, and achievements, while limiting the risks involved.

Clarity is an essential characteristic of effective legal writing at both the trial court and appellate levels. Achieving clarity is an acquired legal writing skill. It involves, for example, knowing how to organize and prioritize legal arguments, how to draft argument headings and subheadings, how to make use of case law and other legal authorities, and most importantly, how to express your points in plain English so that judges will understand and be persuaded by what you are saying. During this “Plain English for Legal Writers” webinar, highly experienced litigators will provide detailed guidance for effective writing, including avoiding “legalese” and other writing pitfalls.
