If you have employees in any of these statutory jurisdictions — California, Connecticut, Colorado, Washington D.C., Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, and/or Washington state — you’re probably looking for tools and tactics to stay on top of your compliance obligations.

Ample time will be provided for Q&A — you won’t want to miss this event!

This webinar will be 90 minutes to allow for additional Q&A.
