When it comes to disability and leave management, the past year has been one HR hurricane after another. Everything is different, including our Annual Disability & Leave Management Symposium. We know you are as frustrated as we are. We wanted to have an old fashioned, in-person conference, but in the interest of social distancing we’ve decided to shake (not stir) things up. That’s why we have converted our annual symposium into a two-part “Happy Hour” series. End your day on a high note as we cover the following topics over two days:

The COVID Impact on Disability and Leave Management Law:  Hindsight Is Always 20/20, Isn’t It?  

In Case You Missed It: Beyond COVID-19

You’ve Got Questions, We’ve Got Answers 

Details and directions to register are available here.
