What is Elimination of Bias? Why are the attorneys required to have at least an hour of continuing education dealing with elimination of bias in legal profession by reason of (but not limited to) sex, color, race, religion, ancestry, national origin, physical disability, age, or sexual orientation?

Issues of bias and discrimination continue to distress lawyers and law firms around the globe. Due to the complexity of laws in this area, even well-intentioned lawyers may falter over one of the provisions of the numerous laws and regulations, prohibiting expressions of bias, discrimination or harassment in the workplace.

In this webinar, we identify bias and discrimination in the workplace, and introduce ways to eliminate them. Furthermore, we examine the new tax rules that impact bias in the work place. The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (December 2017) have impacted implicit gender bias in the work place, small business owned by women, and sexual harassment cases. A review of these issues is helpful to look at the actual impact of such implicit bias in the work place.
