Mike Reilly and Darin Sands will present at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Seattle Seminar on Thursday, September 13 at the Bellevue Hilton Hotel.
At 1 p.m., Sands will serve on a panel entitled “Big Data: Big Deal,” discussing how employers are using big data in moments of significant decision making, and the potential pitfalls of this trend.
Reilly will present “Rethinking Employee Investigations in the #MeToo Era: A Systematic Approach to Investigating Employee Complaints” from 2-3:15 p.m. As a result of the #MeToo Movement, many companies are facing an increased number of employee investigations and with that comes higher-than-ever expectations to conduct a proper investigation. Reilly’s presentation will outline the newest mistakes being made in investigations in the #MeToo Era and steps one can take to perform a more defensible investigation.
