COVID-19 Germany: The New Corona-Warn-App – What Employers Need to Know

by Dr. André Zimmermann LL.M. and Marianna Karapetyan | June.25.2020

A few days ago, the much-anticipated official Corona-Warn-App, commissioned by the German government, went live – and has since been downloaded over 10 million times. The goal is to convince as many people as possible to use the track-and-trace-app to curb the spread of COVID-19. While extensive use of the app can be a benefit for employers who are looking at re-opening and return to work planning, some legal questions come up in the employment context.How Does the App Work?

Commissione internazionale statunitense per il commercio

Further complicating matters are the ITC's unique demands. The Commission moves at a breakneck pace - more than twice as fast as a typical U.S. litigation - and has dozens of ITC-specific rules and regulations. Victory demands extraordinary precision and skill. These rigorous elements are why companies around the world rely on Orrick to protect their most innovative products from exclusion, or to halt competitors' infringing goods. Orrick has participated in 50 ITC investigations in the last five years alone. As demonstrated in the experience listed below, Orrick earned its reputation as a ...

California Becomes First State to Require Employers to Report Employee Pay Data By Race and Gender

by Erin M. Connell and Necia Hobbes | October.01.2020

On September 30, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newson signed SB 973, making California the first state to require employers to submit employee pay data by race and gender.  As we previously reported, SB 973 is modeled after the now discontinued federal EEO-1 pay data collection form, which was harshly criticized for its heavy burden on employers and lack of utility in assessing for pay equity or pay discrimination (see prior Equal Pay Pulse blogs here, here, here, and here).

Delatori e indagini societarie

We’ve worked on precedent-setting cases, including Livingston v. Wyeth, one of the leading cases to date that address what constitutes "protected activity" under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. And we helped Broadcom secure a complete dismissal of a Dodd-Frank whistleblower claim brought by an in-house attorney in Davies v. Broadcom.

by Dr. Christian Schröder, Shannon Yavorsky, Dennis Schmidt LL.M. and Yumiko Olsen | October.01.2020

On October 1st, 2020, the Data Protection Authority of Hamburg (“DPA”) announced that it issued a massive EUR 35.3 million fine against the clothing company H&M Hennes & Mauritz Online Shop A.B. & Co. KG (“H&M”) for the alleged wrongful collection of data of a couple of hundred employees which related to their private life (the English press release can be accessed here).

Corte suprema degli Stati Uniti

Nowhere are these characteristics more prominent than in the cases we litigate before the U.S. Supreme Court. In a recent high-profile report on the Supreme Court bar, Reuters found that a small group of 66 lawyers—out of 17,000 who petitioned the Court during nearly a decade—were more than six times as likely to have their clients’ cases heard by the Court. Reuters identified three Orrick partners as members of this “elite cadre” that “giv[es] their clients a disproportionate chance to influence the law of the land.” Our deep bench includes nearly a dozen former Supreme Court clerks. Our ...
