Jessica Golden Cortes, Davis+Gilbert Labor + Employment partner, will speak during the webinar “HR-Pro: COVID: One Year Later and Beyond, A Legal Perspective” hosted by the The Center for Leadership Development at the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies on April 14.
It is hard to believe that more than a year ago, many of us were taking our first foray into remote work and experiencing the beginning of what would become an incredibly tumultuous 12 months: Coronavirus pandemic, confirmation that sexual orientation is protected by the equal rights amendment, voices rising against systematic racism, a contentious presidential election and storming of the Capitol. 2020 brought emergency legislation from federal, state and local fronts and 2021 is doing the same. It is important for employers to be able to discern what was, what continued and what is beginning.
This session will cover:
- What HR needs to know now to be compliant
- What is on the horizon
- What needs HR’s attention to get best prepared for what’s to come
