E-Discovery in Employment Cases: Ethical and Practical Issues
Franczek Radelet Offices - 8:30 am - 10:15 am
June 17, 2015
Join Franczek Radelet attorney Bill Pokorny and e-discovery expert Jeff Hartman from 4Discovery for a complimentary MCLE seminar focused on merging the practical with the ethical when approaching e-discovery in employment litigation. Many discussions of e-discovery focus on the prototypical "big case" with millions of documents and big budgets for document review, outside consultants, and advanced technology. However, the ethical rules and legal principals governing e-discovery apply equally to smaller cases, such as a typical single-plaintiff employment discrimination case. In addition, emerging e-discovery issues related to mobile devices in the workplace and social media have introduced new ethical pitfalls that attorneys should learn to avoid.
