Francesco (Fran) A. DeLuca, Member of the Firm, speaks at the 2024 Tri-State SHRM Conference, which runs from May 13 to 15.

On May 14 (2:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.), Fran presents "Whistleblowing & Retaliation: Emerging Trends and Practical Risk-Avoidance Strategies." About this session:

Retaliation claims are the most popular claim filed with the EEOC. Agencies, including the EEOC, NLRB, and DOL, have made addressing workplace retaliation a top priority. And employees reported on-the-job misconduct at an unprecedented rate in 2023. Clearly, whistleblower and retaliation risk is on the rise. During this session, we will discuss the main drivers of whistleblower and retaliation risk, how courts and agencies apply the elements of these claims, and practical risk-avoidance strategies, including how to implement the fundamental pillars of an effective anti-retaliation program.

On May 15 (2:15 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.), Fran joins the "HR Stump the Attorney Panel." About this session:

This unique and dynamic session will put you in the driver's seat, allowing you to challenge seasoned employment law attorneys with your most pressing HR-related questions and scenarios. Gain insights into navigating complex legal issues, compliance challenges, and best practices, all while sharpening your HR expertise in an engaging and empowering environment. Don't miss this opportunity to test the knowledge of our panelists and enhance your HR toolkit.
