With the gig economy picking up momentum, the #MeToo movement’s continued presence, unemployment getting even lower, and legislative bodies becoming more active, the timing couldn’t be better to brush up on Labor and Employment laws and recent judicial pronouncements.
This seminar will examine developments in labor law, leave laws, wage & hour, and immigration. We will delve into issues surrounding confidentiality, sexual harassment, LGBT considerations, social media, hiring practices, discipline & termination. This year’s program will also offer a discussion on how to prepare for an economic downturn.
Join us for a two-day conference on the latest Labor and Employment law trends and updates, presented by some of Florida’s top practitioners in the field.
