If attorney-client privileged materials fall into the wrong hands an organization may lose the valuable protections that apply to the privileged materials.
Mahwah, NJ (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
WeComply, Inc., a leader in web-based ethics and compliance training, has announced its "Attorney-Client Privilege" for Employees course. This course explains the attorney-client privilege and attorney work product doctrine in simple, understandable terms. It teaches employees what they need to know about handling privileged communications and materials and how to protect those materials to avoid waiver of the privilege.
The Attorney-Client Privilege course explains what attorney-client privilege is and how the privilege arises. The course covers privileged documents, handling privileged documents, dual-purpose communications, oral communications, waiver and internal investigations. The course also includes a discussion on the attorney work product.
“If attorney-client privileged materials fall into the wrong hands an organization may lose the valuable protections that apply to the privileged materials,” said Mike Pallatta, WeComply CEO. “When this happens, it creates the potential for the opposing party to use those materials against the organization in litigation. This training course is designed to help employees understand the nature of this highly sensitive material and avoid the improper disclosure and inadvertent waiver of privilege. ”
