Webinar: Don't Sweat It How To Avoid Summer Workplace Issues

Jason Habinsky

This webinar will guide employers on how to deal with the multitude of legal issues they will face over the summer.

As the weather warms up and the summer arrives, employers often relax workplace policies, permit time-off, and organize social events. Although casual summer fun is an easy way to boost employee morale, it also brings a host of possible legal issues, such as the potential for harassment and discrimination claims when employers allow casual attire, as well as wage and hour claims arising from hiring seasonal workers and interns.

Employers who throw office parties or organize sporting events, often with alcohol, also must consider the additional implications and potential employer liability for employees who become intoxicated or do damage to others or to property.
