Labor and Employment Webinar Series

Life Cycle of An Employee 

Companies may differ in size, industry or business model. One thing that unites all employers, however, is the goal to recruit, train and retain a quality workforce while remaining compliant with all aspects of the law. The "life cycle" of an employee over the course of their tenure with a company includes other milestones beyond simply recruiting and training. What are these identifiable stages in the employee life cycle, and how can employers navigate through common obstacles to avoid the pitfalls of employment litigation?

This webinar Polsinelli's Labor and Employment series begins the "Life Cycle of an Employee," a year-long examination of the full range of considerations that employers face at each stage of employee development, and how new legal regulations affect best practices from hiring to termination.
