Lori Caron Silveira Speaks on Ethics in Labor Law

Lori Caron Silveira recently spoke at New England Consortium of State Labor Relations Agencies 13th Annual Conference on Friday, July 19, 2013 at Roger Williams University School of Law.

The session entitled, “Ethics in Labor Law – Traps for the Unwary” , explored topics as the unauthorized practice of law before arbitrators and administrative agencies; confidentiality concerns and privileged communications between unions and their members, as well as employers and their supervisory employees; ex parte communications with witnesses and others via social media; the potentially far-reaching implications of the truthfulness obligation in the execution of strategic labor initiatives; and compliance with applicable ethic rules when competing interests create quandaries for unions, employers, and their respective advocates.
