In Minnesota, like most other states, CEU activities can be taken online, through audio tapes and disks, or in person. Self-study and readings may also be used to satisfy part of the CEU requirements. Courses or study generally cover ethics, legal theory, professionalism, substance abuse, mental illness, or other topics as dictated by the state and outlined above. CEU lists courses for all subject matters relative to qualifying courses for CEU in the state of Minnesota.

Experienced attorneys may also receive credit for a speaking or teaching engagement at an accredited program, for moderating or participating in a panel presentation at an accredited activity, or for teaching law courses at an ABA accredited law school. There is often credit available for prepping law students or judging law competitions. Pro bono legal services may also qualify for credit against the CEU requirements for the legal profession.

In Minnesota, CEU Market provides continuing education support for attorneys that is the broadest and the most comprehensive available, and ensures that the courses offered meet state and federal licensing requirements.

In addition, the record keeping offered by CEU Market provides the maximum support available including:

  • self-management of your records and help in planning and maintaining the status of your continuing education
  • access to comprehensive course listings and notifications of course schedules so no important dates are missed
  • safe and secure retention of all the courses completed for as long as desired

It is important that you, as an attorney, be certain that the CEU credit you earn is provided by an accredited provider. CEU Market ensures this is the case for any course you take that is supplied or listed by CEU Market.

#You're Fired @Will: Social Media and Employment Law1$5008/10/2017N/A
This course is worth 1.2 hours in New Jersey and West Virginia.

Description

Employees talk about everything on social media. Their supervisors. Their clients. The pitch they worked on all night. While many of these comments are harmless, some violate workplace rules or threaten company interests.
But disciplining employee social media communications is not as easy as it sounds - even in "employment at will" situations. State and federal law protects certain types of online speech. In addition to the subject matter of the comments, you have to consider where and when the employee posted, and other factors. A mistake in discipline can put you in legal hot water.

Topics include:

  • Laws governing employee social media communications
  • When Facebook, Twitter and other social media posts are protected
  • Recent decisions on social media-based employment terminations
  • Distinguishing off-duty conduct from on-duty conduct
  • Weighing disciplinary action
  • Avoiding retaliation claims
  • Elements of a legal and effective social media policy
  • And much more
