Understanding Developments in Employment Law, be ''Best in Class'' - EEOC Focus, EEO-1 Report Changes and Key Court Decisions





With any new administration come changes in policies that impact the employer and employee relationship. This 2 day in person seminar will bring employers up to date on what has transpired in Washington and what may be on the horizon. The program will address changes at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”). In addition, attendees will review changes in the interview process, and other developments at the federal and state law that, if left unchanged, could lead to significant exposure.

This program presents an opportunity to not only learn about new laws and their impact but to also engage in high level discussions about how to adjust policies and processes at a “best in class” level. The program will be a blend of education, discussion, and exploration.

Attendees will walk away with significant information that will directly benefit their organization.
