HR for Solos, Small Firms & Small Businesses: Employment Policy Issues That Solo and Small Firms Must Know!
Solos, small law firms and businesses often have a different set of human resources challenges than their larger counterparts. Attorneys who manage these smaller firms/businesses need more than expertise in their legal and business practice areas; they should also be knowledgeable in human resources best practices. Additionally, having exposure to the legal services environment may provide the benefit of a better understanding of issues concerning workforce development, employee relations, and compliance issues.
This practical video-encore will explore employment policy issues that can have a significant impact on firms. Panelists will examine the following employment policy issues and the laws from which the issues are derived: leave issues under the Family and Medical Leave Act, non-discrimination laws, recent changes to the Philadelphia Fair Practices Ordinance, including "Ban the Box" provisions, wage equity, LGBTQ+ protected status, discrimination against the ‘unemployed’, pregnancy accommodation and accommodations for employees expressing breast milk in the workplace. Panelists will also offer guidance on how to avoid pitfalls when establishing policies within a small firm or representing clients with an employment claim.
Whether for your firm or the representation of a client, attend this video-encore and understand these often complex yet common employment issues.
