WEBINAR - Scary Stories from the HR Department, Chapter 4: Little Shot of Horrors

Do vaccine mandates, employee handbooks, and reasonable accommodations haunt your nightmares—or even just your email inbox? Our fearless team of employment attorneys is armed with the information and advice you need to tackle the sharpest-toothed employment issues.

Watch attorneys Cindy Effinger and Claire Vujanovic deliver our fourth annual edition of Scary Stories from the HR Department—a fright-filled webinar for employers who are ready to tackle the scary stuff.

Watch here...if you dare. 

Topics include:

  • Vaccine mandates and masking
  • Employee handbooks
  • NLRB changes
  • Employee accommodations
  • And more…

Scary Story Takeaways

  • Dial M for Mandate. When it comes to requests for religious exemptions from vaccine mandates, be sure to engage in the interactive process and search for middle ground.
  • The Discriminator. If LGBTQ+ discrimination arises in the office, remember that sexual orientation and gender identity are protected classes under Title VII. Employee trainings can be helpful!
  • The Bride of Frankenstein (Makes 17.7% Less). Employers should evaluate their pay equity in a pay equity audit to prevent claims before they arise.
  • Return of the Killer Handbooks. Union and non-union employers alike will be affected by changes in the NLRB. Review your practices and policies to make sure you know where you stand.
  • Invasion of the (Alleged) Bodysnatchers. Per a recent KY Supreme Court case, just because an employee was the victim of some offensive conduct does not mean that the work environment is automatically hostile.
  • Stay informed! To avoid scary stories, continue to seek information and updates from resources for employers, as guidance changes frequently. Visit McBrayer's employment blog to stay up to date on issues for employers, and don't hesitate to contact our employment law team.
