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 law, leave laws, and wage & hour laws. We will delve into issues surrounding sexual harassment, diversity and inclusion, cannabis in the workplace, and non-competes. This year’s program will also offer discussions relevant to the COVID-19 crisis, including pay during a pandemic, managing employees who work from home, and workplace safety in the age of a pandemic.
Join us for a two-day seminar on the latest Labor and Employment law trends and updates, presented by some of Washington’s top practitioners in the field.
