For Immediate Release 

Lancaster, Pa. – With laws and regulations changing daily in a post-pandemic world, Barley Snyder has expanded its Employment Training and Professional Development to provide practical guidance in these turbulent times to help a company’s management and human resources teams act decisively and minimize legal risk.

Training sessions are tailored for all aspects of an organization’s stakeholders, such as executives, management, staff and human resources professionals. Popular topics featured by the group deal with the many ways federal and state laws and compliance requirements have changed during the pandemic, and what your employees need to know as they return to their physical workplace.

Some of the training sessions Barley Snyder attorneys offer are:

  • “Legal Aspects of Diversity and Inclusion”
  • “Anti-Discrimination, Anti-Harassment and Conducting Harassment Investigations”
  • “Best Practices for Remote Work Arrangements”
  • “What You Need To Know About Form I-9 Compliance and Audits”
  • “Ten Things Supervisors/Human Resource Managers Do to Invite Legal Action”
  • “Employee Benefit Plans – Fiduciary Duties and Risk Management”

“Risk management is extremely critical as the workforce emerges from remote work after more than a year,” Barley Snyder Employment Practice Group Chair Jill Sebest Welch said. “We’ve always worked with employers on legal training sessions. But as employees return to their physical workplaces – or even as they stay remote – employment litigation is increasing and managers and human resources professionals are facing new challenges without necessary training. We’re trying to help employers provide that important training to keep workplaces safe, inclusive and compliant.”
