Indiana Chamber of Commerce to Host Employment Law Seminar on March 22

Keeping pace with the fast-changing field of employment law is critical for any business, and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s 28th Annual Employment Law Seminar on March 22 in downtown Indianapolis will bring many of the most important issues in this area to light.

The annual seminar is presented by Faegre Drinker and is held at the Indiana Chamber Conference Center from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. A virtual option also is available.

Seminar topics include the Fair Labor Standards Act, employment issues in higher education, conducting effective workplace investigations, best practices for resume review and pre-screening, and surveillance: the profits and pitfalls of data mining employees.

Cost for the seminar is $449 for Indiana Chamber members; the list price is $549. Continuing education credits and group discounts are available.

Additionally, the Indiana Chamber is now offering the 17th edition of its Employment Law Handbook, which provides a detailed description of the entire landscape of federal and Indiana employment laws. The publication is available for $111.75 for Indiana Chamber members, $149 for non-members and $99 for an electronic version.

“The new Employment Law Handbook provides employers direction and guidance on compliance with both federal and Indiana specific regulations,” says Kerri Begley, Indiana Chamber vice president of business education and events. “Hundreds of human resources professionals use this convenient resource to tackle labor law challenges and answer compliance questions.

“The seminar is conducted by the handbook authors from Faegre Drinker and will give attendees a chance to dive deeper into the latest issues they may be facing in 2022,” she adds. “Attendees at the seminar will have full access to the attorneys to get specific questions answered.” You can register for the Employment Law Seminar at www.indianachamber.com/conferences or order the Employment Law Handbook at www.indianachamber.com/publications (HR, Employment Law/Compliance section).
