    How to do Business in the Age of Disinformation: Is Freedom of Speech on Social Media a Blessing or a Curse?

    Online: web based program, .

    The Digital Revolution is bringing sweeping change to all aspects of life and politics, impacting our everyday lives at a much faster pace than other revolutionary innovations in the past. Governments are responding to these changes, but there remains a consistent gap between technologists and business on the one side and lawmakers, and the different divisions of governments on the other side. In this power vacuum, technology is increasingly being misused as a vehicle for criminal activities or to host harmful or illegal content, including large-scale online manipulation and disinformation with profoundly corrosive effects on trust, consensus and democracy itself.

    Littler Mendelson New Data Security Legislation for Employers Webinar

    Online: web based program, .

    The New York SHIELD Act, California Consumer Privacy Act, and Data Security for Employers: HR's Role in Building a Compliant Data Security Program New laws in 2020 highlight why it is critical for organizations to build data security programs to protect human resources (HR) data and for HR professionals and in-house employment counsel to be involved in that process. As of its January 1, 2020 effective date, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) exposes employers to statutory damages in security breach class action litigation if sensitive HR data is compromised. Starting March 21, 2020, New York's SHIELD Act requires any organization with employees who reside in New York to implement a detailed data security program for sensitive personal information, such as SSNs. These laws reflect an on-going legislative trend that has impacted, or will impact employers across the U.S. in the coming years.

    Can’t choose your color! Pink Tax: What is it and why are YOU paying it?

    Flanders House: 620 Eight Avenue, 38th Floor (between 40th/41st Streets), New York

    Many studies conducted over the past several years have concluded that on average, the costs of goods and services marketed to females at the retail level are higher than costs of equivalent goods and services marketed to males. There are no good reasons for haircuts, dry-cleaning, razors, bicycles, or clothing to cost more for women than for men! On the consumer products front, in 2015, the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs undertook a comprehensive study in the New York metro region and issued a detailed report finding that products marketed to women are, on average, 7% more expensive than substantially similar products marketed to men.

Given that the U.S. now has a nearly full inclusion system, albeit at a lower rate, for industries that are light on bricks and mortar, what are companies doing with their IP?  From an inbound perspective, given the U.S. minimum tax known as the BEAT, are companies restructuring their inter-company arrangements?  And, for funds, what havoc is the new U.S. withholding tax on transferors of partnerships interests causing in the market place?   Our panel will have an interactive discussion of the new U.S. rules and the impact they are having on companies that engage in transatlantic business.
