EMPLOYMENT LAW UPDATE &

DEALING WITH EMPLOYEE OFF-DUTY CONDUCT

Thanks in large part to social media, now more than ever employers are aware of what their employees are doing after hours (What Happens in Vegas Doesn’t Just Stay in Vegas). Can and should employers discipline employees for unsavory off-duty conduct and what are the ramifications for doing so? Do employees have any right to a private life outside of the office and, if so, how do they go about protecting those rights?

This program will explore the employment law update that includes transgender issues, how National Labor Relations Board issues apply to your union/non-union workforce, and other thorny legal questions involving off-duty conduct. We will be using hypothetical situations and panel discussion. You don’t want to miss this meeting!

This program has been approved for 1.5 hours
of SHRM & HRCI continuing education credit.
