Employment Law Update for Florida Employers

OnDemand Webinar (87 minutes)

Understand the latest developments in employment law and related government enforcement actions in Florida.Employment law is complicated, and employers who make mistakes and violate the laws can face substantial liability. This is particularly true in Florida, which has a very active plaintiffs' bar and leads the nation in some types of employment lawsuits. Moreover, not only can employment laws set traps for the unwary, but also employment law continues to evolve, so employers who are compliant one year may not be compliant the next even if they do not change any of their policies. This presentation will explain recent developments in employment law and will provide practical tips for avoiding new traps and using developments to avoid potential liability.
