Outlook on Labor and Employment Trends

Date / Time

Venue

This is a virtual event, accessible online and over the phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.

Description

A variety of factors will affect labor and employment conditions this year. New cannabis laws will change how employers use drug testing and screening in the workplace, laws aimed at protecting gig economy workers will continue to reshape how employers build their workforces, and privacy and data security issues will make employers reconsider how they collect and store employee data. Companies need to stay abreast of these developments to effectively manage workforce issues and avoid potential litigation. Join Bloomberg Law for this 60-minute webinar reviewing the key factors legal departments will face in the workplace environment. 

Educational Objectives
Get updated on the changing laws governing medicinal and recreational cannabis use and how they affect worker drug screening, testing, and disability accommodation. Understand how state independent contractor laws, such as California’s AB 5, affect hiring and pay practices. Be prepared to manage employee data as states, and potentially the federal government, begin to tackle employee privacy and data security.
