- The scope of protected activity, and the legal duties of employers, relating to harassment, discrimination, retaliation, workplace safety, and disability accommodations;
- Recommended practices to prepare for, prevent, and defend legal claims arising from employee complaints;
- How to respond to, investigate, document, and conclude internal investigations; and
- Unique risks posed by COVID-19-related safety and vaccine-related claims.
