Bose McKinney & Evans to Host Seminar for Human Resource Professionals on Hiring in a Tight Labor Market

The Labor and Employment Group of Bose McKinney & Evans LLP is hosting an informative seminar to help human resource professionals develop strategies for attracting and retaining talent through changes to their employment policies and procedures without making their company vulnerable to the legal pitfalls of precedent and consistency. The seminar will be held on Thursday, September 27, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., with registration beginning at 8:45 a.m., at the Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel in Carmel, Indiana.

Attorneys from Bose McKinney & Evans will address the following topics during the seminar entitled, “How To” Navigate Changes in HR Policies and Procedures in a Tight Labor Market.

  • Rethinking “zero tolerance” policies with respect to positive drug and alcohol screens, criminal background checks, and sexual harassment.
  • How the NLRB is relaxing its grip on handbook policies in the non-union labor force.
  • Holding onto good employees through enhanced non-competition, non-solicitation-of-customers and non-solicitation-of-employees agreements.
  • Legal use of assistance to foreign workers.
  • Aggressive accommodation of disabilities, religion, and diversity in the workplace to attract and retain talented workers.

The day includes a general session in the morning and roundtable discussions in the afternoon. During the two sessions of roundtable discussions, attendees will be able to ask questions, practical concerns and hands-on experience with their professional peers and attorney moderators.

The cost to participate in the seminar, including lunch, is $95. Continuing education credits for both HR professionals and attorneys have been requested. Reservations are required and seating is limited. Additional information about the seminar can be found by visiting boselaw.com or contacting Kelley Terrill at kterrill@boselaw.com.
