Compliance and Caring Are Not in Conflict: Employment Attorney Perspectives

August 18, 2022 10am Pacific Time

The world can seem very dark to a lot of people in 2022. For many people, the workplace can intensify all of this darkness.

Some think that employers and their employment lawyers can solve all of these problems. That is not reality. But with the workplace occupying such a huge part of our lives, there is no doubt that policies and those of us who advise on workplace law are in a position to do good. We can all agree that the world needs every single bit of good it can get.

Join Bob Coursey from Modern Age Employment Law, Mickell Jimenez from Holland and Hart, and Ryan Parker from SixFifty for a roundtable discussion on how compliance and caring in employment law don't need to be in conflict.
