HR Roundtable

Does your policy undermine your employees’ at-will status? Does your policy make it easier for employees to steal confidential business information? Do your handbook policies expose your company to unfair labor practice charges? Get answers to these questions and more at this HR Roundtable with McGlinchey Stafford.

Bring your handbook and McGlinchey Stafford's employment lawyers will help identify issues and discuss your most pressing employment law concerns.

This event is pre-approved for HRCI Credit. A light lunch will be provided.
