Fisher Phillips attorneys will be presenting two breakout sessions during the Georgia Associations of Health Underwriters conference and participating in a panel presentation on “Plan Trends, Designs and Budgets for 2015.”
Breaking Bad Behavior: Medical Marijuana, Cursing, Social Media, Attire, Tattoos, Missing Underwear, Body Odor, Etc.: Long gone are the days of Miss Manners and etiquette classes that provided a common means for respectful interaction within society. Self-centered behavior and inaccurate beliefs about “rights” in the workplace abound among employees. Employees often come to work with an attitude of personal freedom that frequently is at odds with employment policies. Nose rings, medical marijuana, and sexting are considered “rights.” This session addresses an employer’s rights to prohibit inappropriate conduct and maintain the work environment best suited to the employer’s needs. Come learn what you and your clients may – or may not – need to tolerate in the workplace. Presented by Jennifer Sandberg and Bert Brannen.
When was the last time your Company had a checkup? When it comes to employment law, one thing is certain – change! While stopping all employment claims and issues may be impossible in the current business and political environment, a smart employer can do many things to avoid liability or at least minimize liability. This session will address the many areas of employment law compliance that an employer must consider for effective preventive practices and to better protect their businesses. If you (or your clients) have not reviewed your employment-related practices recently, and determined the preventive actions you may need to take, this session is for you. As a broker, you may be your client’s first point of contact in the event of a question or crisis so learn how to help your client spot these employment and Human Resource related issues. Presented by Jennifer Sandberg and Bert Brannen.
