Workshop B: Unscrambling Legal Compliance in the COVID and Post-COVID Worlds

Friday, May 14th, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Tips for the Two-Dimensional Screen

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.For the longest time, technology was chugging away with the promise (or threat) of changing how you relate to your employees and legal counsel when it comes to compliance. Covid and remote work are driving those changes at warp speed, so we thought it time for a larger review of how the on-screen work world affects the HR profession and your relationship with your attorney. Ron Schneider joins us for a wide-ranging discussion touching on remote investigations, performance management, wage & hour law, and more.  

What’s it all about?   

  • Witness a workplace investigation conducted online to better enable your HR fact-finding skills. 
  • Discover some best practices for wage and hour issues that may be percolating in the remote world – managing the clock and exempt/non-exempt wage and hour matters. 
  • Share ideas for how to use the screen wisely in hiring interviews, performance management, reasonable accommodations, and terminations. 
  • Leave this session with a better sense of when your HR team can directly handle an employment scrape and when it is best to call your legal counsel.
