2020 Employment Law Institute (Webinar Series)

For more than 25 years, the annual Employment Law Institute has brought together human resource professionals, business owners, executives, and managers in a wide range of industries across this region to learn about the latest legal developments, best practices, and strategies to make their organizations legally compliant and employers of choice. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we were unable to proceed with our scheduled live event in May.

We are excited to announce that the show will go on, and we will still deliver the same timely and relevant content you've come to expect, but through a different platform – the 2020 Employment Law Institute Webinar Series.

We have repackaged our one-day live seminar into a series of one-hour webinars over the noon hour to cover the same variety of topics but delivered to your desktop in bite-sized sessions. The kickoff session — Avoiding Common Employment Law Missteps in the New COVID World — will cover issues that should be on every employer's mind. Plan now to get your Zoom face on and join us for the 2020 series, starting June 23 and running through mid-August. Registrants will receive downloadable materials to use as a desk resource and will also have access to view recorded versions of all sessions online at their convenience. HRCI, SHRM, and Kansas and Missouri CLE credit will be requested for live webinar participants; see details below.


The registration fee is $150 and includes live and recorded access and downloadable materials for all six sessions in the series. If you are seeking continuing education credit, please be sure to review the details in the Certification section below.
