Steve Riden to Speak About Employee Duty of Loyalty Litigation
On Friday, February 26, 2021, Steve Riden will be a panelist for a Federal Bar Association presentation titled “Employee Duty of Loyalty Litigation – A National Survey.” The presentation is part of the Federal Bar Association’s 2021 Biennial Labor and Employment Law Conference.
The presentation will be conducted via webinar on February 26, 2021, from 3 to 4 p.m. ET. Registration information and other details are available here.
The other panelists for the presentation are:
- Victoria Cundiff, Partner, Paul Hastings
- V. John Ella, Shareholder, Trepanier MacGillis Battina P.A.
- Laura O’Donnell, Partner, Co-chair of Litigation Practice Group, Haynes Boone
The webinar will survey the law of various states concerning the duty of loyalty and how they differ, including recent federal and state court decisions in this area. The panelists will discuss topics particular to federal practice, such as which state’s laws apply for common law claims in conjunction with a breach of contract claim containing a choice-of-law provision; whether the DTSA preempts certain duty-of-loyalty claims; and whether a claimed breach of the duty of loyalty can be a “faithless servant” defense to a wage claim under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
This seminar will provide an overview of duty of loyalty litigation across the country and tips for litigating them from both the plaintiff and defendant standpoint.
