Session Topics

  • The ABCs of Noncompete Agreements (Webinar)
    September 29, 2022 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM CT
    Register now
    Foulston’s Morgan Geffre and Scott Nehrbass have put together this presentation which will focus on practical guidance, whether your company is seeking to enforce a noncompete or hoping to avoid one, including walking through a noncompete litigation checklist and do’s and don’ts for departing employees and their “receiving” employers. Scott, a partner in our Kansas City (Overland Park) office, helps lead our trade secret and noncompete litigation team and has been trying noncompete cases and crafting noncompetes and other restrictive covenants for 25 years. Morgan is an associate in our Wichita office who has also drafted, defended, and sought to avoid noncompete agreements for our clients.

  • Out of Sight, But Not Out of Mind: Managing Employee Leaves of Absence (Webinar)
    October 27, 2022 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM CT
    Register now
    This session will explore the interactions of various employment laws as they relate to employee leave of absence issues. We will explore FMLA, ADA, workers' compensation, and benefits issues, as well as discuss best practices for managing employee absences.
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Tangible Ways to Improve DEI in the Workplace (Webinar)
    November 3, 2022 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM CT
    Register now
    We often talk about DEI from a 1,000-foot vantage point. Learning basic concepts and strategizing a plan for improving DEI is important, but discussions from this bird's-eye view can make DEI feel like an abstract, theoretical concept instead of something achievable. In this session, we’ll discuss – from the ground level – tangible ways that we can improve DEI in the workplace. For example, we’ll learn how to navigate the interview and on-boarding process without inadvertently raising red flags for diverse candidates. We’ll discuss how front-line managers, as the “boots on the ground,” play a key role in creating a more inclusive work environment, and we will explore strategies for persuading front-line managers to modify behaviors that create a less-than-inclusive environment.
  • Wage and Hour Update (Webinar) 
    November 17, 2022 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM CT
    Register now
    Compliance with the FLSA can present a number of challenges for employers. With the Biden administration settling firmly into office, DOL audit activity has started to increase. This session will cover some of the classic concerns and provide an update on new trends under the FLSA.     
  • HR Mashup: What You Need to Know (Webinar)
    December 15, 2022 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM CT
    Register now
    Foulston’s Don Berner will comb through the HR abyss to identify what should be in your employment law repertoire. Join us for our final session of the 2022 HR Training Series as we discuss OSHA, NLRB, EEOC, and much more.
