Synopsis
This seminar is primer for in-house counsel who may be called upon to answer a “hot call” involving workplace accidents and/or environmental incidents.  The seminar will include a discussion on counsel’s role in responding to these incidents, reporting obligations, inspections vs. investigations, as well as dealing with voluntary and compelled document disclosure and interviews.  We will also canvas the potential for director and officer liability.
