Evaluating Legal Trends and Changing Workplace Attitudes for the Rest of the 2010s

Sponsored by:

Certain societal norms are changing and impacting workplace culture.  These trends are manifesting themselves in the form of new laws, including widespread state legalization of marijuana, ban-the-box laws, living wage ordinances and mandatory paid leave, while others are bubbling up in the form of changing public expectations, as we are seeing in responses to sexual abuse and harassment allegations in the #metoo movement or new demands for flexibility in the workplace in keeping with technological changes.  This presentation will provide legal insights into those on-going changes and offer suggestions for how you may integrate them within your organizations and fine-tune your company culture.
