    From rapid-fire NLRB social media decisions to same sex marriage and recreational marijuana, 2012 brought significant changes to the employment law landscape.

    Littler Mendelson employment law attorneys Pam Salgado and Deidra Nguyen will help you relive the good, the bad, and ugly and provide practical solutions and guidance for how the legal developments of 2012 will impact HR departments. Topics will include wage and hour, confidentiality of investigations, social media, at-will employment disclaimers, paid sick time, criminal background checks, and much much more!
