WEBINAR - Scary Stories from the HR Department, Chapter V: Invasion of the Employee Snatchers!

These are true tales about the calls that come from…INSIDE your company. The calls that haunt your dreams. The calls that cause unending torment. You know – the calls your HR departments field every day of the week.

Back for Round Five of this annual webinar series, these Employment and Labor Law twins of terror are back to discuss issues of concern to HR personnel and provide practical guidance on how to handle your human resources headaches.  Watch attorneys Cindy Effinger and Claire Vujanovic present our fifth annual edition of Scary Stories from the HR Department—a fright-filled webinar for employers who are ready to tackle the scary stuff.

Scary Story Takeaways

  • The Virus That Wouldn't Die: Take long COVID ADA accommodations case by case, and work to find solutions that work for both parties.
  • The Discriminator: Now and always, employers should be cognizant of ensuring that their non-binary and transgender staff receive respectful treatment and should be aware that certain situations may entail making reasonable accommodations.
  • The Menacing Menagerie: Understand the difference between service animals and emotional support animals and consider creating a handbook policy for pets in the office.
  • Rosemary's Having a Baby: Understand your obligation to pregnant employees under federal and state employment discrimination laws. 
  • Nightmare on NLRB Street: Review your handbooks now and update policies accordingly to avoid trouble down the road.
  • The Case of the Vanishing Independent Contractors: Review the new proposed rule for employee classification, look over your practices, and discuss with an attorney. 
  • The Productivity Parasite: As an employer, you can make changes in the workplace to improve employee morale and change the culture of "quiet quitting."
