Program Topic:  HR Nightmares Before Christmas (and Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan and Every Other Holiday)

Program Description:
From Christmas Vacation to Bad Santa, don’t let the Grinch steal Christmas. Instead conquer the legal issues involved with the holidays, including:

   1.  Religious displays and accommodations:  Can I say “Merry Christmas?” “Happy Hanukah?”  Can we have a tree? A Menorah?  Do I have to allow an employee to take off for religious observances?
   2.  Legal risks of holiday parties: from alcohol to mistletoe;
   3.  Inclement weather;
   4.  Holiday and vacation pay and scheduling;
   5.  Kids in the workplace (HIPAA, Confidentiality, Child labor)
   6.  Seasonal Affective Disorder;
   7.  Potluck Potpourri:  If we require employees to bring food, is that work? If 10 people get sick because we left food out all morning, is that compensable or a negligence suit?  Pot laced brownies
   8.  We are all going to volunteer at the local shelter on Saturday.  Is this work?

Get answers to these questions and more as Friday Law Firm give CAHRA members and their guests a free gift on November 9th.
