Workplace Fraud and Forensics: Ferreting Out the Facts
Friday, July 13, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
6.25 general CLE credits
Oregon State Bar Center, Tigard
Nearly every business is exposed to the risk of fraud. A fragile economy and pressure to improve profits only complicate matters. Fraud schemes in the workplace often continue for years before detection. The typical fraud lasts two years from the time it begins until it is caught. Workplace fraud reduces operating revenue, erodes profits and can spell ruin for a company’s reputation. The effects are devastating. Our expert faculty will spend the day on the finer points of workplace fraud, including how to conduct a background investigation and how to gather evidence when fraud is suspected. Participants will receive insight about the workplace fraud profile — who are the perpetrators — and how to detect and prevent fraud. Gain an understanding of computer forensics and how advanced Internet searches can aid in business and individual background checks. Valuable information will be shared to prevent, reduce and eliminate fraud in the workplace.

When the dissolution of a marriage becomes inevitable, you need to focus on the process rather than the case law. This seminar will guide you step-by-step through the divorce process. Learn everything from where the courthouse is located, and what to file from the initial petition through the entry of a judgment. Forms, which are essential to domestic relations cases, are part of the course materials and will reflect recent legislative changes. Our faculty members, Paul Saucy, Joshua Kadish and Ruth Pekelder, are seasoned Oregon family law practitioners with 93 collective years of experience. Their real-life practice approach allows you to bring home ideas and put them to use the very next day. This seminar will be of interest to attorneys who: are new to the practice of family law; require a domestic relations refresher course; want the latest on recent legislative changes, including court rule mandates and changes; and need updated forms. Seminar materials include updated forms that reflect recent legislative changes, with electronic forms for petition, temporary motions, discovery-related documents, uniform support declaration, letters to clients and others, and orders and judgments.
