Diversity, Inclusion and the Elimination of Bias

With a renewed focus on diversity and inclusion in the workplace, the need to implement policies and procedures to sustain a diverse, inclusive and bias-free workplace has never been more important.

The program will explore the importance of diversity in the workplace, and how to achieve and sustain it. The course will also examine how to address complaints that arise from employees and how to engage in a cooperative dialogue/interactive process, as well as other steps that can be taken to avoid complaints in the first instance. This course will also address implicit and explicit bias in the practice of law, including how to identify it, handle it and avoid engaging in such conduct. Finally, our experts will provide an overview of the frameworks used to address claims of employment discrimination and sexual harassment, as well as common issues that arise in such cases.

Anatomy of an Age Discrimination Case

Dave Richards, of Steptoe and Johnson, Amanda Fugazy of Ellenoff, Grossman & Shole, LLP and Rosalind Fink of Brill and Meisel will discuss the elements of a claim for age discrimination as well as the steps that employers cabn take to prevent and defend against such suits. Though perhaps best known as the author of the groundbreaking 1972 Yale Law Journal article “Development Rights Transfer in New York City,” Richards was the face of the EEOC’s age discrimination suit brought against Sidley and Austin on behalf of 32 former partners whose status was downgraded before most of them left the firm. After an extensive investigation, the EEOC charged that the firm’s actions were made in violation of the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The firm ultimately settled the case for $27.5 million. The case was closely watched in the legal community because partners were generally considered to be “employers” and thus, not subject to the federal anti-age discrimination laws. Under the consent decree, Sidley agreed that the affected partners were employees subject to the ADEA only “[f]or the purposes of resolution of this matter.” . Rosalind Fink heads Brill & Meisel’s employment practice, representing both individuals and employers and writing and lecturing frequently on employment law, harassment and discrimination. She has counseled over 1000 individuals or employers in employment-related disputes, representing many in negotiations and, if settlement was not possible, in subsequent litigation or arbitration. Ms. Fink previously headed Columbia University’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action, while also teaching a colloquium at Barnard College, her alma mater, on civil rights and liberties. Amanda M. Fugazy, is a member of Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP and head of the firm’s Labor & Employment Law group. She represents businesses and executives in litigation and is known for developing and delivering custom tailored management and employee-training seminars on a variety of employment related topics. Since one of Ms. Fugazy’s strengths is valuing and resolving cases, she also serves as a mediator, and has successfully resolved many cases by appointment through the Federal Court for the Southern District of New York.
