5 Employment Law Hot Topics and Trends: For the Savvy HR Professional

Friday, May 10th, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

What’s it all about? How do you keep pace with the fast changing world of HR and employment law? This engaging Friday workshop will highlight 5 rapidly evolving issues impacting the culture of your workplace and methods of your legal compliance. Gain the latest information on drug testing, compensation issues, millennials and Gen Z, social media, and hiring. Debra Weiss Ford, an employment law attorney from Jackson Lewis, brings her fun, tech savvy style to the presentation, and you’ll participate in some digital surveys and interactive sessions. David Ciullo, from Career Management Associates, hosts this participatory forum and adds his spin and case studies to the mix. You’ll leave this session with ways to minimize risk and maximize results.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Learn how to build the concept of fairness into your compensation strategies and practices.
  • Gain insight into new hiring challenges, which in turn may dictate what you should and should not ask of prospective employees while on your quest for talent.
  • And discover how the fairness and talent acquisition issues described above also relate to: A) the current state of drug testing law and implementation trends, B) the creation of realistic social media policies, and C) your need to toss out unconscious biases about Millennials and Gen Z.

Approved for SHRM, HRCI General (HR), and CLE credit.
