Labor & Employment Law - Hawaii
Managing HR In The New Era 

June 24th & 25th, 2020

Streamed Live On ZOOM
Honolulu, HI






A prominent  Philosopher, commenting on societal change, once  quipped"There is nothing more constant than change." Not a very eloquent observation, but for today's situation, it's an accurate measure of what HR Professionals and Hawaii Employers will face in the months and years ahead.  So it goes with this conference which, for years, with different agendas, has been presented as a one-day conference in the Waikiki Ballroom at The Hale Koa Hotel.

This Year, for the comfort & safety of our audience, it will be live-streamed to You on ZOOM in two 4-Session morning-agendas on the dates shown above.  Like our past conferences, we have  assembled an impressive faculty of up to 8 eminently-qualified and accomplished Hawaii Attorneys to present the 2 comprehensive agendas.

Day 1 of the conference begins with a discussion of the impact on Hawaii employers of recent new or amended national & state employment & labor laws plus legal trends & hot issues for 2020 & beyond.

In following Sessions 2, we narrow our focus to discussions of what work will be like in the Covid 19 era, specifically what employers can & can't do or require and then moves on to clarify FFCRA, specifically with regard to Leaves, Furloughs, Layoffs and Recalls

We'll complete Day 1 with  a  session led by one of Hawaii's top employment & labor law attorneys, speaking on potential liabilities of remote working arrangements and protections employers can put in place to limit their exposure to litigation.

Day 2  begins with an examination of the real possibility of a surge in unionization as employee loyalty fades, including tools and strategies employers can use to counter union organizing activites. In the following Session 2 we explore 3  employment law suits, why they landed up in court & how the courts' decisions may impact  Hawaii employers.

In the following session on Employee Handbooks, we'll examine key essential changes which will redefine the concept of Employment in the Covid 19 era..

We'll complete Day2 and the conference on a high note as a seasoned litigator outlines what Hawaii employers will need to mount a viable defense against  a Covid 19-related employee lawsuit.   

Eight information-packed sessions, with a volume of information and legal opinion to guide you through the challenges HR Managers will face in The New Era
