About the Labor/Human Resource Webinars

The Business Council is continuing its highly successful webinar series in 2018. This year we are doing things a little differently. In addition to our monthly Labor/HR webinars on trending topics, we are also including separate Q&A-focused webinars on the implementation of the state’s Paid Family Leave program. Unlike our standard hour-long webinars, these will likely be shorter and will not include HRCI certification.

As always webinars are free to members. Non-members must pay a $59 fee.

Topics include:

  • Unlawful Workplace Harassment Training
  • ADA/FMLA/Worker’s Compensation Compliance
  • Employee Work Schedules, Break and Meal Period Compliance/NYS Budget Update
