    Topic: Worker's Compensation Update


    Attorney Michael Wagner will conduct an interactive session updating our group on the current legal environment and its impact on Human Resources. Using case studies to highlight key points, Mike will touch upon Workers Compensation, FMLA, and ADA issues - both individually and in relation to one another. He will illustrate how these laws, when woven together, can create complex legal issues for the HR practitioner. He will also discuss some of the legal issues that surfaced during the Covid-19 pandemic and how these will look in a post-pandemic world. As always, Mike will engage us with his wit and wisdom on this topic and provide us with an entertaining and meaningful session.
