Employment Law Seminar 2024

Join us for our biennial employment law update! Ever-changing labor and employment laws and regulations are an endless challenge for HR professionals and business owners. That’s why every other year we offer our Vogel Employment Law Update, bringing you the latest information on new laws, regulatory changes, and recent state and federal court cases of critical importance to North Dakota and Minnesota-area employers. Our expert presenters will cover 2024’s hot employment law issues, including:

  • KrisAnn Norby-Jahner, Attorney: “Hiring and Managing Remote Employees” In this session, Vogel attorney KrisAnn Norby-Jahner addresses legal compliance issues in hiring remote employees locally and in other states, developing remote work policies, managing remote workforces, and avoiding legal pitfalls.
  • MacKenzie Hertz, Attorney: “Managing Leave Requests under New and Existing Laws – Practical Guidance for Compliance” – In this session, Vogel attorney MacKenzie Hertz will cover key concepts in managing leave requests and complying with various overlapping federal and state laws. MacKenzie will discuss employers’ greatest challenges, common mistakes, and practical solutions as illustrated by examples from real life and case law.
  • Bailey Voge, Attorney: “Employment and Labor Case Law Updates” In this session, Vogel attorney Bailey Voge will discuss recent developments in employment caselaw at both the State and Federal level.
