This program is the first in a series of presentations focused on employment issues where state laws have a major impact. Historically, employment law was very federal law-centric. If an employer followed federal employment laws such as Title VII or the Fair Labor Standards Act, an employer would be in compliance with most significant employment laws. Over the last few years, state and local governments have enacted a myriad of employment laws, creating major challenges for multi-state employers. Our objective is to help the audience understand trends.
In this session, we start with a very state law focused topic–off duty conduct of employees. First we’ll talk about state laws that govern employers’ ability to take action based on an employee’s off-duty conduct. Then, we discuss appropriate actions when an employee is accused or convicted of criminal conduct. We will wrap up by focusing on taking action against an employee because of off duty political activity and social media posts.
At the end of this session/webinar, participants will be able to take appropriate employment action when an employee engages in off-duty conduct that affects the workplace.
