Webinar: The Law of Social Media, Discrimination, and Harassment

Tuesday, November 17 | 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. | no cost, registration required

The Law of Social Media, Discrimination, and Harassment. Social media can help build a business, but social media can be a cesspit of toxicity that can ruin a business or a career with a single post. This session will explore how laws regarding harassment, discrimination, employee rights, the National Labor Relations Act, freedom of speech, and the workplace mingle and lead to a minefield that makes COVID seem like a picnic.

Webinar: Business Interruption Planning and Recovery

Thursday, December 3 | 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. | no cost, registration required

It is the rare business that didn’t suffer some sort of interruption in 2020. The need to plan for the interruption and more importantly for the recovery has never been clearer. Most small businesses were just improvising in 2020, but that is not a great way of dealing with interruption and recovery.
