Strategic HR at Mt. Washington: Oct 24-26, 2021


Ask the Lawyer

Tuesday, October 26th, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 8:15 am

What’s Keeping HR Awake at Night?

What’s it all about? Most of our working lives have been turned upside down by Covid. Labor management lawyers are no exception to the rule, as many of us in HR seek “round the clock” access and have a newly discovered appreciation for legal counsel. Remote work and the path of the pandemic raise questions every day about leave laws, wage and hour, accommodations, investigations, independent contractors, the applicability of laws, and so much more. Mt. Washington veteran Debra Weiss Ford from Jackson Lewis will take to the stage this morning to offer a few legal gems and take your latest round of challenging questions in this breakfast session moderated by David Ciullo from Career Management Associates. 

Why you’ll want to participate in this session. 

  • Discuss the areas of employment law seeing the most activity and posing the greatest risks during Covid.  
  • Discover ways to triage and mitigate the immediate issue, while at the same time thinking strategically to manage the long-term implications of the problem. 
  • Leave this session with a better sense of when you need to “pick up the phone” vs. “go it alone” when handling a range of employment issues.
