Ellen Messing Featured at Conference for Washington-Area Employment Lawyers
The Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association (MWELA), a Washington, DC based local affiliate of the National Employment Lawyers Association, recently invited Ellen Messing to present at their annual conference. This was Ms. Messing’s second invited appearance at MWELA’s annual conference, which is advertised as MWELA’s “hallmark event featur[ing] industry experts presenting on topics concerning all aspects of the plaintiffs employment practice.”
At this year’s conference, Ms. Messing served on a panel addressing the use of “purloined documents” in employment cases. Modern office technology provides employees with ready access to copy and remove confidential documents from the workplace. This practice is often used by employees seeking to gather documentation of a dispute. Ms. Messing and her co-panelists examined the ethical and strategic considerations facing plaintiffs’ lawyers regarding the use of these documents in evaluating and litigating employment cases.
