Wednesday, April 24 | 1:00-3:00 p.m. ET

Sponsored by

$95 for CUPA-HR Members | $195 for Nonmembers

New year, new cases, new discussions, new problems and new twists on nagging old problems. All will be covered! Employment laws and the interpretation of those laws are of constant concern for HR professionals. Add to that the challenges of navigating and complying with those laws in a higher ed setting, and things can get even more complicated.

In this virtual workshop with Ira Shepard, CUPA-HR’s general counsel and a labor and employment lawyer in Washington, D.C., you’ll join other participants in a two-hour problem-solving session based around current and relevant employment-law topics.* This is a great opportunity to tap into Ira’s 40+ years of experience and his insight into the unique implications for higher ed HR.

Before he tackles your topics, Ira will prime the pump for the first 30 minutes of the workshop with details of timely employment-law challenges, followed by a discussion of several controversial higher ed employment cases. Based on the facts, see if you can determine how the case played out, and then hear Ira’s takeaways to avoid similar litigation on your campus. (If you attended Ira’s workshop in the past, this event will present new cases and new takeaways!)
