Law Update 2022

13th Annual Employment Law Update (Webinars)

During the 13th Annual Law Update, we reviewed 2021 hot topics in employment law and looked ahead to 2022. The two programs covered different topics.

Speakers provided updates on the law, refreshers and practical advice for HR professionals and senior administrators of your organization or campus as we enter 2022. We aimed to offer a program that balances our goal of keeping you informed and providing an opportunity to address your questions, while respecting your time as you work to weave another webinar into your busy days.
