Live web cast: April 16, 2014 (12:00 noon ET)

In Lawson v. FMR, LLC, the Supreme Court determined that the whistleblower protections of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 apply to private contractors that perform work for publicly held companies.

A “Target”ed Discussion of Data Breaches: Responding to a Payment Card (PCI) Breach (2427)
Live web cast: May 6, 2014 (12:00 noon ET)

In this program, the presenters focus on what to do when companies and their counsel realize that a payment card (“PCI”) data breach has occurred. Topics include the unique contractual obligations of companies to investigate PCI breaches, and to coordinate their investigation with their financial business partners; strategies for communicating information to the public to minimize the chances of litigation or investigations; and strategies for conducting a forensic investigation that is complete, accurate, and positions the company to defend itself in litigation if needed.

EEOC's Administrative Process: EEOC's "Sue First, Ask Questions Later" Strategy and the Federal Courts (2419)
Live web cast: May 7, 2014 (12:00 noon ET)

Former EEOC General Counsel Eric Dreiband discusses strategies for responding to EEOC investigations and litigation; recent developments in the courts about the EEOC's obligations to comply with its procedural requirements; the EEOC's violations of its legally mandated procedures; significant court decisions about the EEOC; and other significant developments.

Employee Benefits for Same-Sex Partners-Required Benefits and Best Practices Post-DOMA (2424)
Live web cast: June 25, 2014 (12:00 noon ET)
The Supreme Court's June 2013 ruling regarding DOMA had dramatic implications for employee benefit plans and requires many plans that did not previously cover same-sex spouses to do so. In addition, more states continue to legalize same-sex marriage, and the federal and state taxation of health benefits offered to same-sex partners has grown more complicated. The IRS has issued some guidance, but has not yet issued critical guidance governing the retroactive impact of the Supreme Court ruling. Todd Solomon, McDermott Will & Emery LLP, discusses the Court's ruling, the future of DOMA and same-sex partner benefits, the current and future IRS and DOL guidance on the subject (including the anticipated summer 2014 guidance), and the impacts of all of these developments on benefit plan sponsors.
