Ethical Pitfalls For Plaintiffs' Employment Lawyer, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association




Summary
Plaintiffs’ employment attorneys do good work. But the pursuit of goodness is occasionally marred by pitfalls. In particular, an attorney’s efforts to assist clients can often lead to ethical dilemmas that threaten the sanctity of the attorney-client relationship. Even more, serious ethical dilemmas can put an attorney’s legal career at risk. Can an attorney pressure a client to accept a settlement so that the attorney, working on a contingency basis, can more promptly receive payment? What costs/expenses can an attorney/law firm advance to clients? Can an attorney represent multiple clients who have claims against the same defendant, but whose cases may have different levels of liability and different values? When, and for what reasons, can an attorney end the attorney-client relationship? These are just a sample of some of the ethical considerations that attorneys’ may face in representing employees.

This course has been approved in CA, OK, VT and IL. Please see your state's MCLE site for more information or to find out if attorneys may earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission. This course is eligible for 1.25 hours of Ethics credit, in approved jurisdictions.
