TCSHRM - October Webinar: Key Developments in Employment Law from 2020

  • 21 Oct 2020
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (CDT)
  • Webinar

During this webinar, Littler will cover the key updates from the past year in employment law that will impact your business heading into 2021. Legislatures across the country and here in Minnesota have been busy enacting new laws, related to Covid-19 and other topics. Not to be outdone, administrative agencies have shifted their focus to adjust to a changing political climate. From FFCRA requirements to new decisions from the Minnesota Supreme Court about sexual harassment and paid sick leave, this session will cover new development and trends HR professionals should be aware of moving into 2021.

In this interactive program, participants will learn about:

  • What have we learned from COVID-19 and the “new normal”, including litigation trends;
  • Emerging developments from significant Minnesota Supreme Court decisions impacting employers; and
  • Recent trends in administrative agency filings
