Women in the Work Place is the theme for the seminar, which will emphasize topics that women are often challenged with in the workplace. There will also be discussion and updates on emerging employment laws and regulations including sexual harassment, Earned Sick and Safe leave, age discrimination, tipped employee reporting requirements, minimum wage and the Ban the Box law.
