It is important for California employers to understand how to comply with these new requirements. In order to help protect employers against liability, Morris Polich & Purdy LLP presented our annual employment seminar that outlined the new and changing laws of which California employers need to be aware, and provided tips for handling these new requirements.

"BULLY" DIRECTOR/WRITER SERVED AS KEYNOTE SPEAKER! Lee Hirsch, "Bully" Director/Producer/Cinematographer/Writer, also Joined the Panel for Questions Is your educational institution prepared to deal with incidents associated with sexual harassment, sexual assault and bullying (including cyber-bullying)? The media has recently covered several shocking incidents around the country, as well as the controversial release of the documentary "Bully." In response to this, WRM America financed this one day conference to help educational institutions. The event was designed for principals, managers, administrators and board members of schools and colleges, to make them aware of the necessary precautions to protect their campuses, as well as what the law demands of them. Those who attended walked away with a better understanding of the law, the insurance coverage needed, and what steps to take if an incident is reported. As keynote speaker, "Bully" director/producer/cinematographer/writer Lee Hirsch offered an invaluable perspective, and provided proactive advice for educational institutions, based on his own experience as a victim of bullying, the creation of his heartbreaking documentary, and his goal to see schools involved in the prevention of bullying, by equipping them with the proper tools. He also discussed the importance of viewing this documentary within your institution (an edited PG-13 version of the film was released on April 13), using it as an educational tool to encourage discussion, and making sure children and parents understand its critical messages.Venue:600 Townsend Building 600 Townsend Street, Suite 110W San Francisco, CA 94103Sponsors: WRM AmericaMorris Polich & Purdy LLP
