Breakfast Seminar

Litigation cases against Japanese-owned companies in the United States going before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) have risen sharply. Most recently, the EEOC litigated a $34 million settlement in a sexual harassment case with Mitsubishi Motor Manufacturing of America. This seminar is designed to help reduce the risk of employment litigation by discussing the kinds of claims being raised by employees and former employees against their Japanese employers and shedding light on the approach of the EEOC in connection with investigating and litigating these claims. HR managers and in-house counsel with Japanese firms should find this program of particular value. Includes continental breakfast.
