The world is faster and more connected than ever before. Through their connections, businesses share information in ways thought unimaginable a few decades ago. As companies continue to integrate computers, tablets, smart phones, and the cloud into their business models, the need to take cyber security seriously grows exponentially. A data security breach can disrupt business operations, damage brand reputation and customer relationships, and attract government investigations.

Join us for a practical and informative session on the latest developments in privacy laws that employers should be aware of in the coming year.  Our speaker will be Lauren Cell, an attorney with the labor and employment firm of Fisher Phillips.  Lauren will take SHRM members through some of the latest changes to privacy laws that impact employers including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act. These laws affect NJ employers who do business in Europe or California even if they don’t have operations in those locations.  Additionally, program attendees will learn practical tips they can use to secure employee data and manage data privacy.


Lauren Fuiman Cell is an employment law associate in the Philadelphia office who focuses her practice on counseling and litigation of employment and trade secret matters.  She assists employers with these matters throughout the United States and on a multi-national basis. As a member of the firm’s International Employment Practice Group, Lauren advises and represents clients with global employment issues and works with corporate Human Resources and Legal teams to assist clients with multi-national operations.  She has dedicated a substantial portion of her international practice to cross-border safety and security issues and has advised clients on creating and implementing effective global safety and security policies. Lauren recently was invited to author a white paper published by the International SOS Foundation, which was drafted in partnership with the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, which analyzes safety issues for U.S. employers that have a globally mobile workforce: “Legal Perspective on the Health, Safety & Security Responsibilities for a Mobile Workforce.” The white paper was published in February of 2017 and addressed the employer’s duty of care to its employees both domestically and abroad, including the employer’s duty to understand the threats its employees may face and how to respond to these threats from a preventative standpoint.  She also regularly presents and speaks on related global employee safety issues. 

Lauren also assists employers throughout the United States in crafting employment agreements and implementing employee handbooks and personnel policies and procedures for their domestic workforce.  Lauren defends employers against employment-related claims in federal, state, and local venues.   Lauren has defended employers in disputes arising under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), as well as state anti-discrimination and wage laws, and defamation statutes.

Lauren also litigates matters concerning employee recruitment and movement of employees between competitive firms, including covenants not to compete, employee raiding, and trade secrets.  She has handled such matters in courts throughout the country, as well as specialized arbitration venues such as FINRA Dispute Resolution, Inc. Lauren is a volunteer for the Court Appointment Special Advocate (CASA) Association, providing assistance to neglected children during the court process.
