Wearing the Many Hats of HR - Some Smart Advice from an Employment Law Attorney
A well-run HR department on-boards new hires, oversees complaints and leave requests, and weighs in on terminations, all while conducting constant risk assessments and making recommendations to management regarding areas of exposure. This can be a heavy load to carry. Are you a busy business owner trying to do it all? Or are you the lone member of your organization tasked with all things "HR"?
Attorney Jennifer Ward will discuss some of the legal pitfalls of running an HR department solo. She will help you fine-tune your skills for identifying areas of risks and consulting legal counsel when appropriate.
