What if you only had 1 hour to teach your employees about the important protections found in the attorney-client privilege?
I usually reserve at least 25% of the time for questions and conversation, so now you're down to 45 minutes.
As we've previously covered in the InHouseOwl Ultimate Guide on Antitrust Training, Ultimate Guide on FCPA Training and the Ultimate Guide on Advertising Law Training, corporate counsel need to start with the basics. What do employees need to know? And when do they just need to spot a red flag and report back to legal?
In those guides, we discussed that corporate counsel need to focus on teaching employees to (1) spot red flags and (2) respond appropriately in risky situations.
Unfortunately, privilege training is a bit more complex in that employees will "need to know" its basic principles. Once the damage is done, it's extremely difficult (nay impossible) to remedy.
