Third Thursday Business Builder, Staying Current: HR & Employment policy updates for 2019
People and workforce are an integral part of business operations – meaning it makes sense that labor regulations and employment policy considerations are consistently ranked among the top 10 concerns confronting managers and owners. The Augusta Metro Chamber’s Third Thursday Business Builder presented by Fulcher Hagler LLP, to be held January 17 at Sizemore, Inc. State of the Art Training Room (located at 2003 Gordon Highway), will focus on ‘HR & Employment policy updates for 2019.’ Updates include government level regulations that need deciphering before implementation, while others may be an overdue review of existing employee handbooks that don’t account for new technology and changing social norms in the workplace.
Guest speaker Dora Hogg, Fulcher Hagler LLP, will discuss legal and employment considerations for your business or organization, including best practices for compliance and policy, and review of changes that may impact these considerations.
Dora Holley Hogg received her juris doctor from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2003. She currently focuses her practice in the areas of employment law and railroad litigation.
