Hedge Funds Nuts & Bolts: Employment Issues in the Asset Management Industry
Hedge fund managers are no strangers to the surge in workplace claims and employer responses which are receiving dramatically increased scrutiny from regulators, investors and the public at large. In this environment, addressing employee claims against your fund management company, both before and after they are filed, is of increasing importance.
In this month's webinar, members of Dechert’s Labor and Employment group addressed key employment-related issues confronting hedge fund and other alternative investment asset managers as they seek to manage their workforces in an evolving economic and legal environment.
The topics covered include:
- Avoiding and responding to whistleblower claims under the Dodd-Frank Act and other federal and state laws;
- Dealing with the growing risks and claims of sexual harassment and sex discrimination in the #MeToo era;and
- Understanding recent changes in state and local laws concerning employee compensation, including salary history bans, equal pay laws and pay transparency.
