Coffee mug and iPadJoin us for our Fall 2019 Employment Law Series where HSB’s Employment Law team will present a complimentary one-hour breakfast session each month on key employment law topics. Presentations will be live-streamed to our offices in Charleston, Columbia, Florence and Greenville each month so you can attend in the city of your choice.

Lisa R. Claxton will kick off this fall’s program on September 19 with a discussion on workplace bullying. Lisa will discuss the effects bullying has on the workplace and provide strategies employers can use to confront and prevent bullying at work.

On October 24, Chris Gantt-Sorenson will focus on the EEOC guidelines for Title VII investigations, identifying common mistakes employers make with those investigations and the value in following the EEOC process even to any resulting litigation. Chris will also touch on the appropriate response to any DOL or SCDLLR investigations.

Perry MacLennan will speak on Pay Equity on November 21. From the U.S. Women Soccer team’s lawsuit to the new EEO-1 Reporting to companies voluntarily disclosing their pay information, pay equity is all over the news. This presentation will cover issues concerning equal pay, including the current state of the law, pending legislation and what your company should disclose.

We will end the Fall Series with Our Gift to You – Ask the Attorney on December 12. Members from our Employment Law team will be on hand to answer your questions. You can submit your HR-related questions when you register for this event.

HSB is an approved SHRM provider and courses will be submitted for SHRM, HRCI and SC CLE credits.
