Labor & Employment 

Please join Husch Blackwell’s Labor & Employment attorneys for our annual Legal Update Seminars, presented virtually. The series will launch on October 12 with a national overview of key legal developments impacting the workplace. In the following weeks, our programs will focus on state and regional labor and employment developments.

We invite you to customize your experience by choosing the topics that are most applicable to you and your organization. You can attend one, several or all sessions. Unable to join us at the scheduled date and time? Register anyway and we will email you the recording.

Our National program will begin with an overview of changes that employers can expect under the Biden Administration. This will be followed by a discussion of COVID-related considerations, including President Biden’s recent Executive Orders on vaccine mandates, OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard, and lessons learned over the past 18 months. Finally, we will explore the increasingly complex role that gender is playing in the workplace, including discussions about pay equity, pregnancy discrimination, and gender identity.
