Kevin J. O’Connor, Partner in Peckar & Abramson’s New Jersey office, will participate in a panel discussion at the 2018 CLM & Business Insurance Retail, Restaurant & Hospitality Conference entitled, “Threading the Needle: Best Practices for Protecting the Franchiser’s Brand While Mitigating Risk From EPL Claims.” This session will address the delicate balancing act that franchisers must engage in to assert some control over the franchiser/franchisee relationship in order to protect the brand, while considering the risks of liability for employment-related claims. Panelists will discuss the current law on joint employer liability and review recent case law involving franchiser liability for discrimination, harassment and wage and hour claims. Speakers will also provide best practices for mitigating risk. Mr. O’Connor’s panel will take place on Thursday, February 8, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 3:20 PM.
