Complying with the Deemed Export Rule Without Violating Anti-Discrimination Laws
When hiring new employees for positions requiring access to export controlled technology or software, how does a company ensure compliance with deemed export licensing requirements under the ITAR and EAR without running afoul of U.S. employment discrimination laws? In addition to these legal compliance considerations, what steps can a company take to avoid the cost and risk of employment discrimination claims that may result from an applicant’s perception that his or her nationality or citizenship status unfairly determined a negative hiring decision? In this presentation, Mr. Ludwig will outline the relevant legal considerations and share best practice recommendations based on the current state of the law and guidance from the Department of Justice’s Office of Special Counsel.
