Adam E. Gersh and Michael D. Homans, both shareholders in the Labor and Employment Practice Group at Flaster Greenberg PC, co-presented two separate sessions at the Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s 19th Annual Employment Law Institute on April 16 and 17.
Gersh co-presented an ethics session with Michael S. Friedman, Esq., of Jackson Lewis LLP. The presentation, “Purists and Prostitutes – Ethical Issues When Employment Lawyers Take a Walk on the Other Side,” examined the ethical issues, traps and limits for labor and employment lawyers who are “working both sides of the street,” representing corporations and individuals.
Homans co-presented a counseling session with Jeffrey M. Lindy, Esq., The Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Lindy, examining the Penn State scandal as a case study, highlighting lessons for employment counsel, in-house counsel, and their clients in dealing with allegations of serious or criminal conduct at work. The presentation, “Lessons from the Lion’s Den: Employment Law Takeaways from the Penn State Scandal,” analyzed the tragic events that came to light at Penn State, and the investigations that followed, noting missteps that employers should avoid when dealing with similar allegations at their companies or institutions.

He focuses his practice on the representation of businesses in employment and complex business disputes in the federal and state courts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania and before federal and state administrative agencies.
