This webinar will examine the explosion of verdicts and settlements involving employers whose employees engaged in "distracted driving"—using electronic technology while behind the wheel. The recent $21 million verdict against Coca-Cola in Texas, involving a company employee who struck someone while talking on a cell phone, has caught the attention of the human resources and legal communities.

We will explore the legal landscape surrounding employer risks and obligations when it comes to employees, driving, and technology, including the views of federal and state lawmakers, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The session will conclude with a discussion of employer "best practices," including tips for policy development.
