KMA to Participate in Portland “Business Breakfast Forum: HR Right Now”

Controversies that dominate the headlines—such as gun control, marijuana legalization, sexual harassment—also have an impact on the workplace. This free panel discussion, April 11, at the Portland Public Library, covers how Human Resource departments are responding to various legal and cultural shifts affecting employees.

  • Does a workplace need to develop rules around bringing guns to work?
  • How could drug-testing impact employment when marijuana is now legal in the state?
  • And how closely should employers take another look—or even a first—at their harassment policies and disciplinary procedures?

Come and find answers to these questions from our expert panel, plus ask your own.
