2021 Employment Law Seminar: Navigating Constant Change

2021 employment law seminar

Society is changing quickly, creating deep divides within workplaces and forcing employers to make difficult decisions. Navigating it all — while maintaining a safe, compliant workplace — can be difficult, especially when those laws seem to change monthly, if not daily. Further complicating matters, the changes aren’t limited to those related to COVID-19. Several changes around noncompete agreements and other workplace laws have also occurred. 

To ensure you understand the latest employment law changes as you work to protect your employees and your business, Johns, Flaherty & Collins will cover critical changes at our annual employment law seminar, Navigating Constant Change: Employment Law in 2021. We hope you’ll join us.
