Ward and Smith Speakers: Ken Gray, Justin Hill, and Devon Williams
Session 3: 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

In-house counsel are often asked to play a role in workplace investigations related to human resources issues.  This role has likely been more involved with constantly evolving COVID-19 rules and regulations.  This session will incorporate virtual interactivity and will allow attendees to act out real-life HR scenarios remotely.  Each case example will be discussed in an open forum to provide insight into navigating the current, complex employment environment.
