Keep your company ahead of emerging lawsuit landmines.

HR Issues on the Horizon

Google Glass and the staggering privacy issues that come with it. Sophisticated monitoring of teleworkers in their homes. Your company’s data spread across a number of devices so large that it can’t even be tracked.

Workplace trends mentioned briefly as “what-ifs” are becoming more commonplace than you know. And a true HR pro has to keep ahead of emerging lawsuit landmines. To help you, The HR Specialist has created an exciting new webinar for you: HR Issues on the Horizon.

Join us January 15 for this unique training event. Jonathan Hyman, attorney and author of The Legal Workplace blog, which reports developments in everything from e-cigarette policies to cases of height discrimination, believes the time is now to confront the hidden HR problems that are headed your way.

From social media legal issues to the emerging science of job interviews … data privacy (yours and your staff’s) to the dizzying array of new devices in your workplace (again, yours and your staff’s), HR Issues on the Horizon will tell you what to do (and what NEVER to do).

Should you vet applicants based on their tweets and postings? Can new screening techniques backfire on you? Do you ban smartwatches, Google Glass, and tablets at work – or encourage them? The right answers to these questions could set you apart as a savvy HR operation. The wrong ones could land you in court.

There are no easy answers to these challenges. But we’ve got some GREAT answers for you. Jon Hyman – one of our most knowledgeable and popular presenters – will provide the solutions you need. And he’ll do it in a language many lawyers seem to have forgotten: English.

When you attend HR Issues on the Horizon, bring questions. Jonathan Hyman is an expert at spotting the HR concerns embedded within everything from Facebook “likes” to the concept of Internet Use Disorder. If you’ve seen a headline about it, he knows how it’ll impact your company, and will be tackling questions like:

  • What additional concerns do social media apps like Instagram and Vine bring to the workplace?
  • How far can we go in keeping tabs on our growing numbers of remote workers?
  • At what point will telecommuters begin to see their accommodation as a right, not just a privilege?
  • Are we going to take it on the chin for trusting new data that tells us to stay away from certain employee personality types?

There are two ways to approach HR: Sit back and wait for the dilemmas to come to you, or take the crystal ball in your hands and keep your company looking ahead.

The future could be here as soon as tomorrow morning when an employee knocks on your door with an absolute stunner of a problem. Do you want to know what is right now?

HR Issues on the Horizon will tell you.

And because this is a webinar, there is no limit to the number of colleagues you can invite to sit in on this interactive event. I look forward to welcoming you January 15.
