2021 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. While we continue to face the live-event challenges amid the pandemic, we promise the show will go on, and we will still deliver the same timely and relevant content you've come to expect.

We have packaged our usual one-day live seminar into a series of webinars to cover the same variety of topics, but delivered to your desktop in bite-sized sessions. Plan now to join us every Thursday in April for the 2021 Employment Law Institute (Webinar Series). 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.

This year's program will kick off with two presentations covering the most recent legislative and agency updates we are seeing affect your organizations and will wrap up with a panel of our employment attorneys sharing what we may need to prepare for going forward. You won't want to miss it - register now!


The one-time registration fee is $195 and includes live and recorded access and downloadable materials for all sessions in the series. If you are seeking continuing education credit, please be sure to review the details in the Certification section below.
