Are You My Employer? (Re)Defining Employer/Employee Relationships

2019 Talent Conference & Exposition
Learn current trends, factors used and proactive practices to employ to help ensure the desired working relationship is created.

Today's workplaces are as varied as the people working in them―and so are the relationships that workers have with the entity for whom they provide services. Are your employees really employees? Do you want them to be? Are there conditions you want to impose, such as a promise not to solicit, compete or disclose when they stop working for you? Join this interactive program as we review recent case studies and legislative and regulatory trends that impact how working relationships are defined.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe at least two legislative trends impacting the basic nature of working relationships.
  • Distinguish between noncompete, nondisclosure and no-solicitation agreements.
  • Name and describe at least three types of working relationships and how they differ from one another.
