2018 Annual Employment Law Conference

Salem Convention Center – 200 Commercial St. SE, Salem, Oregon 

Presented by the Saalfeld Griggs Employment Law & Litigation Team:

Randall Sutton / David BriggsJennifer Paul / Therese Holmstrom

Employment law compliance is one of the most difficult challenges faced by any company. Even small mistakes can result in significant liability. Employment laws often defy commons sense and don’t reward good intentions. To protect your company from liability, it is important to understand the law, recognize potential risks, adopt solid documentation practices, and make informed decisions.

This conference will focus on the HR risks and challenges that are most likely to trigger a lawsuit, BOLI / EEOC / DOL investigation, or employee demand. We will identify traps and potholes and provide practical advice. Sessions are interactive with plenty of time to ask questions and work through problem-solving exercises.

This conference is designed to provide a solid foundation for supervisors, managers, and staff who are looking to gain a big-picture understanding of employment law. Experienced HR professionals and managers will also benefit from advanced level content and legal updates. With multiple presentation tracks, each attendee can target the content that is most applicable to them.
