2020 was a difficult year for many employers and employees, and a busy year for the state legislature and Congress on issues pertaining to the workplace. As we usher in a new year, please join our Employment Law Team to discuss how the laws that impact the employment relationship have changed—for better or worse—and what lies ahead in 2021.

Our topics of discussion will include:
