The April issue of “Take 5: Views You Can Use,” written by David W. Garland, a Member of the Firm in Epstein Becker Green’s New York and Newark  Offices, David W. Garlanddiscusses a number of topics relevant to employment in the financial services industry.   In these times of continuing downsizing at many financial services firms, we particularly recommend the discussions of the EEOC’s amended rules governing the defenses to disparate impact claims based on age, and a recent case regarding the application of Title VII to the provision of severance benefits.  The April 2012 issue also covers employer requests for access to employee Facebook accounts, a new EEOC publication on the rights of disabled veterans returning to the civilian workforce, and challenges to the use of unpaid interns.
