Electronically Stored Information (ESI) encompasses an ever-expanding array of material stored on computers and other digital devices. As digital communications—whether written, audio, or video—have become the norm in the workplace, achieving a just resolution for employees who have been treated unlawfully increasingly depends on our ability to identify, acquire, and deploy ESI in all of its various forms. Our two-day, in-depth program will examine all things ESI from the employee rights advocate’s perspective, and give you the tools you need to uncover the evidence that could make the difference between winning and losing your next case. In addition to helping you understand all of the various types of ESI and reviewing recent trends in ESI law, topics covered will include: working with defense counsel to develop e-discovery protocols for your case; preserving, collecting, and producing ESI from your client(s); social media discovery; ESI from the judges' perspective; ethical considerations implicated by ESI and evolving technology; and more!
