Understanding employment law and human resource compliance is the basic building block for a successful organization. But for many HR professionals, the events of the past year may have strained cohesion in your company and made workplace legal issues more difficult to understand than ever.
The 2021 Labor & Employment Webinar Series from Woods Rogers will help company leaders and HR teams understand and address timely employment issues including new regulations, marijuana in the workplace, DEI programs, and more.
Don’t let HR be the missing element of your business operations. Join Woods Rogers’ attorneys for our 40th Annual Labor & Employment Webinar Series and ensure the chemistry is right in all your HR practices.
Executive Leaders, Owner/Operators, Directors, In-House Counsel, Managers, and all Human Resource Professionals
With so many great unknowns around the emerging variants of COVID-19 on a national level and here in Virginia, we have made the difficult decision to move our 40th annual Woods Rogers Labor and Employment seminars back to the virtual world in 2021. While our preference would be to return to “live and in-person,” we simply do not believe that would be responsible at this time given the uncertainty we all face. Instead, we hope you will join us from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm each Thursday between October 7 and November 4 as we carry on our annual tradition.
