Employment Law Update in Florida

October 24

Gain a better understanding of Florida's ever-changing employment laws and keep your company safe.

Employment laws in Florida, and across the country, are changing at a rapid pace. Employers are often left unsure about their obligations when it comes to issues such as medical marijuana, which has recently become legal in the sunshine state. Further, employers are facing questions about their obligations to employees and clients on matters such as sexual orientation and gender identity. Making ill-informed comments or decisions can lead to costly litigation. Additionally, working from home (or on the road) has become an increasing popular request from employees. However, many employers may fail to recognize the risks involved. After this material, employers will understand some of the hottest topics in Florida employment law today, and how to make the best decisions for their businesses. We will also cover some general best practices for supervising and disciplining problem employees.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to identify the best practices for dealing with problem employees.

- You will be able to recognize your obligations to employees and clients on areas regarding sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination.

- You will be able to discuss what Florida's new medical marijuana law means for your business.

- You will be able to review your current mobile workplace policies for potential weaknesses and liabilities.
