Program Topic:
Employment Law Update: A Legal Perspective from a Plaintiff and Defense Attorney

It is always important for organizations and HR professionals to stay on top of legal updates and regulatory requirements that affect companies and their employees. With the new political administration and the continuing pandemic, it is even more crucial to determine what employment laws have been updated and their impact, how to change processes, and how to communicate changes to employees and leadership.

Join local attorneys, Christopher Hedican and Kathleen Neary, as they give their viewpoints on the current legal landscape and how it relates to work.
