Workplace “First Responders:”
How HR Leaders Are Shaping the Post-COVID World of Work
Description: The future of work we had been planning for just six months ago has vanished, and the one before us is hard to predict. But even before the massive disruptions of COVID-19, the workplace was changing drastically— and faster than many leaders could plan for. Now HR leaders are being called to make some of the hardest decisions of our careers—about remote work, health and safety, and even race relations, Now more than ever, HR is making decisions that directly impact people’s lives and livelihoods and are transforming the future of work.
Join SHRM President & CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., in a discussion of how the events of 2020 have elevated HR leaders to the role of a lifetime: ushering our workplaces into a new world of work, where people and culture drive results.

What Just Happened? The Top Ten Critical Labor and Employment Law Developments That May Have Been Overlooked During The Covid-19 Pandemic
As HR business partners, you and your team members have become highly focused and knowledgeable regarding all things COVID-19. You’ve learned FFCRA, NYQLL, WARN, NYS Mini-WARN, CARES, PPP, PUA and many other acronyms all while providing your teams with emotional stability, support and engagement in a remote environment. It was more than a full-time job! But what about everything else? Federal, state and local labor and employment laws continued to change rapidly during this time. Courts continued to issue important decisions that will frame the way we manage our workplaces on Long Island and that will adjust how we practice workplace law.
Join Jackson Lewis P.C. to analyze the Top Ten most critical legal developments that may have been missed while your attention was diverted elsewhere. We’ll address NY State paid sick leave, the expansion of Title VII, the fluctuating work week method for overtime calculations and more. Finally, session participants will become prepared to address “must have” policies and procedures for handling future pandemics or other emergencies to ensure that your workplace didn’t miss a beat.
