Event:
Department of Labor and Training: What Government Attorneys Need to Know - IN PERSON
 
Additional Information:
During this presentation, the speaker will discuss how government attorneys are responsible for all legal matters affecting their agency, along with the unique legal needs of the lines of service of the agency.

Attendees will identify the challenges in determining who your client is, whether it’s the public, the agency director, or employees, along with the multiple roles that government attorneys play such as litigator, counselor, administrator, negotiator, and hearing officer, among others. Our speaker will also comment upon the latest First Circuit decision, In re Grand Jury Subpoena, 909 F.3d 26 (1st Cir. 2018), which is a case of first impression, holding that there is an attorney-client privilege between government attorneys and their government employees when it comes to grand jury subpoenas. Lastly, the speaker will review the purpose of the Healthy and Safe Families Workplace Act under R.I. Gen. Laws § 28-57-2 and how the Department of Labor and Training interprets and enforces the law.
