Age Bias at Work: Why Our Laws are Ineffective and How to Improve Them

Age Bias at Work: Why Our Laws are Ineffective and How to Improve Them Details


Price:
$24.99

Course Description

There is a saying that everyone in America will ultimately be a target of age bias, as the passage of time doesn't discriminate. We all get old. However, as plaintiff's attorney David Graulich explains in this class, U.S. laws that were intended to protect employees and job applicants from age discrimination have become ineffectual and weak. Technological and demographic change have far outpaced the primary Federal law, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), which first became law in the 1960's. Today algorithms, micro-marketing and data mining can ferret out who is "old" without even requiring human interaction. As Graulich points out, a regrettable decision by the United States Supreme Court has also made it difficult for plaintiffs to win in a lawsuit predicated on age discrimination. Graulich lays out his recommendations for how to overhaul and strengthen our legal framework, so that civil actions grounded in age bias will once again be a genuine deterrent for employers who discriminate against older people.

Course Agenda

  • Management and Age Bias
  • ?Wall of Discrimination
  • ?Micro-Targeting?
  • How Employers See Persons Who Are Age 40+
  • How Recruiters See Persons Who are Age 40+
  • How Company Lawyers See Persons Who Are Age 40+

Competence Issues Relevant to an Attorneys Ability to Perform Legal Services Details


Price:
$19.99

Course Description

In this program patent attorney Steven A. Nielsen discusses the evolution of awareness of the general subject matter of competence as it relates to substance abuse (including new legal medical cannabis), stress, age, dementia and other factors and their relationship to the practice of law. The maxim that "the law is a jealous mistress" can be true if attorneys fail to take a big picture view of the factors at work which can cause physical and mental harm and distract lawyers from enjoyment of their lives and the need to pay attention to their physical and mental health.

This program addresses both the need for awareness of substance abuse, depression, mental illness, age, cognitive decline and related issues, plus practical, easy to implement steps to facilitate an enjoyable and effective practice.

How to Understand and Properly Value Client Assets Details


Price:
$19.99

Course Description

Legal issues arise in many areas when it comes to collectibles, and one of the hottest and most contentious areas involves record collections (from 78s to digital), and related music memorabilia.

Accredited Senior Appraiser and member of the American Society of Appraisers who specializes in this area, Stephen M.H. Braitman has been involved in a myriad of cases which have required his services. In addition to his role as an expert witness in litigation, practice areas in which his expertise has been utilized include Family Law, Estate Planning and Insurance issues, evaluations for credible Fair Market Value, Replacement Value, and Liquidation value appraisals of contested property.

In this program Mr. Braitman reviews the role of the appraiser and the process for certification as an appraiser. Specific issues include: The potential of a music collection, what to look for in "hidden assets" that may be significant, what issues arise between collectors (and?everyone else!) , some contentious records and memorabilia, the need for accurate appraisals and how an undervalued appraisal can affect both the financial and legal outcome of a family or institution, the current market in music records and memorabilia collectibles, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, credentialing of the appraiser, the appraisal process, issues in divorce, property settlements and estates, how to overcome the lack of value-knowledge of an insurance adjuster, appraised value as leverage or as collateral, satisfying I.R.S. donation requirements, auctions, and an in depth review of specific types of records and music memorabilia and their current and future value.

Course Agenda

If your firm represents libraries, archives, insurance agencies, or executors for estates, or is involved in family law, this program is a unique and valuable resource. Moreover, the cases in which Mr. Braitman has been personally involved, such as the Michael Jackson property at Neverland Ranch, the Elton John record collection, and donations to the Library of Congress and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, make this program a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at a wide variety of legal issues related to music, such as

  • Insurance Replacement Cost Coverage
  • IRS Charitable Donations
  • Equitable Division of Property in an Estate or Divorce
  • Estate Planning
  • Expert Witness
  • IRS Federal Estate Tax
  • Loss of Value Claims
  • Opinions of Value

Leak-Driven Law

View Course Details

Leak-Driven Law Details


Price:
$24.99

Course Description

Over the past decade, a number of well-publicized data leaks have revealed the secret offshore holdings of high-net-worth individuals and multinational taxpayers, leading to a sea change in cross-border tax enforcement. Spurred by leaked data, tax authorities have prosecuted offshore tax cheats, attempted to recoup lost revenues, enacted new laws, and signed international agreements that promote "sunshine" and exchange of financial information between countries.

The conventional wisdom is that data leaks enable tax authorities to detect and punish offshore tax evasion more effectively, and that leaks are therefore socially and economically beneficial. This Article argues, however, that the conventional wisdom is too simplistic. In addition to its clear benefits, leak-driven lawmaking carries distinctive risks, including the risk of agenda setting by third parties with specific interests and the risk associated with leaks' capacity to trigger non-rational responses. Even where leak-driven lawmaking is beneficial overall, it is important to appreciate its distinctive downside risks, in order to best design policy responses.

This Article is the first to thoroughly examine both the important beneficial effects of tax leaks, and their risks. It provides suggestions and cautions for making and enforcing tax law, after a leak, in order to best tap into the benefits of leaks while managing their pitfalls.

Course Agenda

INTRODUCTION THE EMERGENCE OF TAX LEAKS
  • Understanding the Emergence of Tax Leaks
  • Seven Significant Leaks
  • Some Initial Observations
THE BENEFITS AND RISKS OF TAX LEAKS
  • Cross-Border Tax Administration and Enforcement
  • The Benefits of Leaked Information

NLRB-Labor Law Update Details


Price:
$19.99

Course Description

Changes in the composition of the National Labor Relations Board have led to changes in workplace law. The scope of employees? protected activity as well as employers? rights to set policy and to manage the workforce are in flux. More change is anticipated as the NLRB looks at setting new standards for union organizing, workplace access of union representatives, use of electronic communications, and the scope of protected employee dissent. In case rulings, guidance memos, and proposed regulations, this is a time of change labor and employment law practitioners need to follow.

Course Agenda

  • The National Labor Relations Act vests employees with rights under Section 7 to engage in activities relating to unions, mutual aid and protection on wages, hours, and terms and conditions of employment, or to refrain from such activity.
  • The NLRB has two principal functions pursuant to the NLRA:
  • enforcing laws to ensure that workers may freely exercise their rights under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act (the Act) without any interference from employers or unions, and
  • holding secret ballot elections at which workers can choose whether to have a union represent them.
