From paid sick leave to pregnancy accommodation and everything in between, 2017 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 the ugly of 2017 and provide practical solutions and guidance for how those legal innovations will impact your HR strategy in 2018 and beyond.
