In the last year, employers have faced a new and ever-growing array of challenges, ranging from a labor shortage, an increase in union activity, employee responses to social justice, political, and personal causes, and the lingering "new normal" related to the pandemic. Cozen O'Connor's Labor & Employment Department invites you to our annual summit, which will be a virtual event taking place over two partial days. This dynamic program will also include practical and strategic sessions offering discussions and solutions for workplace issues and the challenges posed by increased regulation on the federal, state, and local levels, along with panels where Cozen O'Connor attorneys are joined by speakers from in-house, government agencies, and other professional fields.
