About the Program
Join FordHarrison attorneys Dawn Siler-Nixon and Shannon Kelly as they discuss some of the upcoming employment law hot topics for 2014. The discussion will include the following topics:

  • Death to Unpaid Internships - Once regarded as an unparalleled opportunity to gain valuable experience in a chosen field has now become a new mechanism for suing a future employer before employment begins. Will the "unpaid internship" survive?
  • The Legalization of Marijuana and Effect on Employers' Policies - Will the legalization of marijuana send your workplace policies up in smoke?
  • How Long Term Unemployment Makes Applicants Unemployable and Steps Employers are Taking to Squash the Stigma - This discussion will explore steps employers can take to eliminate the stigma of long term unemployment in hiring practices.
  • Ban-the-Box Laws, Background Checks and Related Fair Hiring Standards - Although Florida has not yet implemented such a law for private employers, the EEOC has endorsed ban-the-box as a best practice for employment decisions so it's only a matter of time before your company is affected. 

This program is pre-approved by HRCI for 1 hour of PHR, GPHR, and SPHR recertification credit.
