Those of you who attended this morning's Legal Beagle Bagel Breakfast ("LBBB") enjoyed a great training course on the stray remarks doctrine and it's limited use in California courts. Travis Stokes also discussed the California E-Discovery Rules, and how, between these rules and the court's ruling in Reid v. Google employers must be cautious with e-communications, and also routinely and in good faith destroy email communications.
Participants of the LBBB wanted Travis to post some materials on this blog that will allow them to provide training to their employees regarding: (1) The stray remarks in emails; (2) the discovery of electronic information; and (3) what an employer must do to avoid the affects of the court's decision in Reid v. Google. Travis will comment to this blog with those training materials.
If you are interested in attending our LBBB training courses, let me know and I will add you to our invitation list. These are great training opportunities for anyone working in California HR.
