Confronting Hate Speech in our Schools: The Dangerous Intersection of Free Speech, Bullying and Discrimination

A student places a confederate battle flag sticker on the cover of his notebook.  Another student wears a “No Sharia Law” t-shirt.  Still another calls a fellow student “white trash” for wearing a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap.

Are these examples of free speech or hate speech?  Could they constitute bullying or unlawful discrimination?  Is there anything you can do to avoid the difficult and harmful consequences of these situations?  How do you manage them when they occur in order to protect your District from costly litigation and public relations nightmares?

Join us for an in-depth lecture and panel discussion of this complicated topic for board members and school administrators.

Legal Update and Predictions for 2017-18: Employment Law Changes Impacting Schools

Are the federal overtime rule changes gone for good?  What about New York’s overtime rules, what do they require for schools?  Does your school district have to comply with New York’s new Paid Family Leave Law?  What are the courts saying about sexual orientation and transgender rights of employees?  What are the potential consequences associated with disciplining an employee based on a conversation captured on a surveillance camera?

Come learn the latest news and trends associated with employment law in the schools.
