ELAI Seminar

How Employment Lawyers handle and advise on white collar crime in the workplace

15 February 2018


Employment lawyers are increasingly being asked to advise on white collar crime in the workplace.  In this seminar we will explore the challenges faced by employment lawyers particularly in the context of the Criminal Justice Act 2011, 7 years on since its enactment:

  • what to consider when taking instructions,
  • representing both the body corporate and individual,
  • withholding information under s19,
  • when and how should employers disclose an internal investigation,
  • the challenges for employers in conducting internal disciplinary investigations against the backdrop of an external investigation by an Gardaí Síochána or a Regulator,
  • the role of the Gardaí and their powers during an external investigation.

Our speakers have experience of both prosecuting and defending white collar crime cases and will provide unique insights together with practical know-how tips. By the end of the seminar attendees should understand the challenges white collar crime poses for both the instructing legal adviser and their client whether employer or employee.

ELAI are delighted to have the pleasure of the Honourable Justice Patrick J Mc Carthy, Judge of the High Court, who will chair this seminar.
