Psychological, Bias, and Ethical Issues in the California Workplace 2024

JAMS neutral Stephen P. Sonnenberg, Esq. will be chairing an upcoming program: Psychological, Bias, and Ethical Issues in the California Workplace 2024. This program will address key employment law issues at the intersection of law and psychology in a clear and pragmatic way. Claims of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation, including those related to mental disabilities, accommodation, and religious belief are profoundly impacted by the range of emotions that motivate employees and employers. This program brings together a representative of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a psychiatrist on every panel, and prominent California practitioners from the employee rights and management bars to address current and novel employment law claims. They will identify key legal issues and ways in which psychological factors influence the employees, managers, and employers engaged in conflict. Stephen P. Sonnenberg, Esq. will also lead a panel discussion on “Neurodiversity in the Legal Profession; Recognizing and Transcending Workplace Bias” at 10:45 AM.

This session will help participants to:

  • Understand the meaning of neurodiversity, the attributes of neurodivergent individuals, and their prevalence in the legal workplace
  • Recognize the subtle and overt ways in which bias against neurodivergent attorneys impacts their recruitment, hiring, training, and accommodation
  • Identify applicable California and federal laws addressing discrimination and bias against neurodivergent individuals
  • Discuss steps legal industry employers should take to minimize recruiter and algorithmic bias
