Legislative Update: What HR Professionals Need to Know for 2022

The updates in 2021 continued at a fast and furious pace, with things like vaccine mandates, accommodation issues, and a flurry of legal challenges keeping us on our toes. But legislatures have also begun to shift their focus to non-COVID-related areas as well as we saw significant developments in whistleblower protections, privacy surveillance, and paid family leave updates, just to name a few! In this session, we’ll review the important updates from 2021, but we’ll also take a look ahead at what we can expect in the new year so you can hit the ground running, confident, and prepared! Please join us for a legal update session you won’t want to miss!
