Human resources management and employment law are constantly evolving to meet the needs of the modern workplace. Association professionals need to stay up to date on these changes to ensure that their organization’s HR policies and practices comply with current law. In this session—part of a four-part online seminar series on legal issues affecting associations that non-lawyers should be aware of—you’ll discuss essential topics such as recruitment, hiring, and termination practices; the Americans with Disabilities Act; forms of employment discrimination; investigation of sexual and workplace harassment complaints; and issues arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act, including exempt/nonexempt determinations and eligibility for overtime pay.

This online seminar features facilitated audio content and conversations. Before the session, registrants will receive login information and links to test their computer and become acquainted with the platform. Participants will have access to the recorded session, reference materials, and more for up to 30 days following the program.

Registration for this online session will close Monday, October 26th 2020, at 12:00 p.m. ET.
The full four-part series is also available for registration, or you may register for any of the other individual sessions:
