November Dinner Event & Pre-Meeting Workshop-November 20

Title: “Workplace Harassment and Legalized Marijuana - Today’s New Normal”
Speaker: Eric Gordon, Chair, Labor & Employment Practice Group, Akerman LLP (click here for bio.)

This presentation will provide an update on workplace harassment, including sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation, almost two years after the start of the #metoo era.  How have employers reacted to certain behaviors that have existed for many, many years, but have only recently received such prominent attention in the news media?  We will discuss best practices for proactively addressing these issues in your workplace. 

The presentation will then turn to another hot topic in workplace employment law: legalized marijuana - both medical and recreational- and it’s impact on employers and employees in the workplace. The laws surrounding marijuana in the workplace are frequently changing. We will discuss what happened in 2018, both in Florida and around the country, including what to expect in 2019 and beyond. This is a very tricky area of employment law and employers will greatly benefit from learning best practices in this popular new area. 

Eric is a longtime member and Past President of HRPBC and has been presenting legal seminars to HRPBC for more than 10 years. He promises to deliver an entertaining and educational presentation - hope you will join us!

Approved for 1 SHRM recert credit and applied for 1 HRCI credit.
