With the COVID-19 pandemic substantially impacting businesses and their employment decisions, the timing couldn’t be better to brush up on Labor and Employment laws and recent legislative and judicial developments.
We will examine developments in labor, leave and wage/hour laws, as well as new limitations impacting severance agreements in Oregon. Our experts will cover issues surrounding confidentiality, sexual harassment, workplace violence, misclassification, discrimination, and terminations. This year’s program will also offer discussions relevant to the COVID-19 crisis and how to build a positive work environment.
Whether you are an attorney who represents employers or employees, a business owner or executive, a human resource professional, or a manager in a government agency, you don’t want to miss this seminar.
