Byrona Maule, Phillips Murrah P.C., Oklahoma City, OK

While the legal landscape has remained somewhat stagnant, the culture of the workforce has not.  We will cover the current legal trends in employment law and how the law intersects with the current culture of the work force.  We will consider how an employer should react to an employee’s off-duty conduct given the current culture, and what laws are implicated when an employer decides to act based on off-duty conduct.

Knowledge Level: Basic
No Prerequisites or advanced preparation required
