    Employment law is ever-evolving, and it can be extremely challenging to keep up with every new law and regulation that applies to your business. Today’s employment laws tend to swing in favor of greater protection of employees and are heavily influenced by social factors.

    In fact, the “Me Too” social movement alone has led to a 13.6 percent rise in sexual harassment claims last year, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In addition, new Cannabis laws have employers raising concerns around discrimination lawsuits and potential impacts of safety on the job. In Minnesota, employers are subject to new record-keeping requirements around wage theft, adding to this list of potential civil penalties and lawsuit risk.

    There are steps your company can take to stay compliant, protect your employees, and provide an “open door” policy of transparent accountability.

    Join Holmes Murphy, CSDZ, and Best & Flanagan for a joint panel seminar that will discuss new employment law implications, available insurance protections, and the impact your corporate culture can have on safety, including:

    • The impact and effect of the “#MeToo” movement and sexual harassment issues in the workplace
    • New cannabis laws
    • Minnesota’s new wage theft law
    • Non-compete agreements

    Attendees will leave with tips on how to address and prepare for these issues at your company, stay compliant with the law and resources to help employers mitigate risk.
