Barry Willoughby and I attended Utica National Insurance Group’s 2010 School Risk Management Seminar. During the seminar, the speakers were kind enough to allow us to generally comment on the topic of what school faculty and staff must know about emerging technology to keep staff and students safe. The conversation was dynamic and attendees asked some timely and tough questions about things like how to handle staff and student use of social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace to how to handle “sexting” at work.
We will be covering some of these same topics at our 2010 Employment Law seminar. To give you an idea of what the topic of conversation will be at our Employment Law Seminar, my materials from the School Risk Management Seminar are attached below. I look forward to seeing you at this year’s seminar in the afternoon breakout session, “Special Rules for Schools,” which I will be presenting with Michael P. Stafford.
