What You Need to Know About Dynamic Employment Laws and Your Culture

Wednesday, September 11, 2019, 1:00 pm CT

Employment law has long been a highly dynamic area of law, but this seems to be truer now than ever before. The Supreme Court of the United States has agreed to hear not one, but three cases addressing sexual orientation and gender identity. Emojis have come up more than 50 times in the first half of 2019 in harassment and discrimination cases. Marijuana is now legal in a multitude of states. And one state became the first to finally say enough to workplace bullying for private employers.

During this webinar, Lisa Yankowitz will explore these trending issues in employment law. Plus, she’ll share highlights from the harassment/discrimination case law and discuss an emerging trend toward harassment prevention to effectively avoid liability.

During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • How to understand what has been happening in employment law since the beginning of 2019, and be prepared for what’s to happen next
  • What’s happening in the courts and with the EEOC in the area of harassment and discrimination with a focus on sex, disability, and race
  • How to shift your focus from avoiding liability toward proactive harassment prevention and creating a culture of respect
