Employment Law in 2020 - Controversy, Cannabis and Contractors: Three C’s to consider in DC and Beyond Webinar


Date: February 5, 2020

Time: 12:00PM - 1:00PM

After a very busy year, employers entered 2020 juggling new and proposed regulations at the local, state and federal level. Please join us for a webinar as we review and discuss (1) new obligations for employers in DC, Maryland and Virginia; (2) federal legislation impacting employers nationwide; and (3) employment law trends and key challenges that we expect to see coming down the pike in 2020. Topics for discussion will include, among others:

  • Cannabis testing in DC – How will the new legislation affect pre-employment qualifications for employers?

  • The run-up to the 2020 presidential election promises to be as divisive as our current political environment. How can employers manage potential controversies among employees and political speech in the workplace?

  • New legislation puts limitations on nondisclosure agreements. What’s next for MeToo?

  • Several states have passed legislation surrounding independent contractors. Who’s next?
