Session 5 | Taming the Wild World of Labor Law: Current Trends in Workplace Law

Session Summary

New laws and regulations have been enacted and interpretations of existing laws are changing. It is easy to put the cart before the horse and misjudge the impact of labor and employment law, resulting in financial harm not only to your center but also to yourself. Presenters will explore the most commonly misunderstood areas of employment law, updated for 2023, to help avoid costly litigation. The second part of this session will feature a panel discussion on positive employee engagement. Increasing evidence shows a connection between engaged employees and stronger business performance. Positive employee experiences can lead to higher productivity, a decrease in turnover and better retention of knowledge and skills. Join this interactive session to hear from attorneys and profession peers who are putting engagement at the center of work as they discuss established strategies on how to improve the employee engagement process.
