    Event Description:

    Title:                Managing Employees and Avoiding An Employment Dispute In The Midst of a Turbulent Time

    Summary:       There always are employment issues that companies have to deal with as a part of operating their business.  But the pandemic has triggered new issues we have never seen before and intensified the scrutiny and sensitivity to more traditional ones.  So how do employers continue to manage their business operations without running afoul of the growing web of federal and state employment laws.  As a part of this HR Academy, we will address the hottest employment topics plaguing employers and offer tips on how to navigate (and hopefully avoid) an employment dispute.

    This seminar is approved to offer both SHRM and HRCI credits to the attendees.

    The schedule will look as follows:
