Workplace & Employment Law Update (WELU)

Save the Date: December 2nd, 2021

Organizations have relied on Employers Group’s information-packed, one-day Workplace & Employment Law Update (WELU) for over 40 years. This year’s virtual event covers the issues, laws, and practices employers must know about so they can be prepared for the upcoming year. Unlike other updates, Employers Group’ delivers its WELU before the New Year so HR and business leaders have time to adequately handle compliance complexities. Plus, EG’s program covers timely workplace issues that impact how companies do business.
