Join lawyers from Cooley's employment & labor and compensation & benefits groups for HR Network – a seminar featuring practical solutions for human resources challenges in a dynamic employment environment. The 2021 HR Network series will be entirely virtual. While the program will look a bit different from prior years, we can’t wait to share the same useful content – just virtually. We have broken down the usual programming into multiple, shorter sessions so it is easy to tune in. Check out the full schedule below.

Legal Update East Coast + Midwest

This program is an update on the latest employment-related legal developments and will cover new laws and recent cases addressing issues involving wage and hour; illegal discrimination and harassment; leaves of absence; remote work; return-to-office and safety protocols; and other hot issues.
