Bryant Andrews, Abigail Green, and Bethany Salvatore will be presenting on various Labor & Employment topics at the Pittsburgh Human Resources Association. Bryant and Bethany will be presenting "Can I Fire an Employee for That? Social Media in the Workplace." How can, and should, employers handle employee social media use on and off the clock? When does an employee’s Facebook post amount to a verbal threat against another employee? When does an Instagram comment on a co-worker’s picture border on sexual harassment? When is an employee’s twitter message considered protected under the law? Can I issue a written warning, suspend, or even terminate the employee? This program aims to address these questions, among others, so HR and management know how to respond when an employee says: “Hey Google, update my timeline.”
Abigail will be presenting "The Current Status of Medical Marijuana Laws and the Effect on Company Policies." The presentation would provide an overview of the current status of medical marijuana laws in the 50-states and how these laws affect employer policies such as the FMLA, ADA and drug and alcohol testing policies.
