March 19, 2020 – Media Financial Management Association’s (MFM’s) March Lunch & Learn, 21st Century Employment Law Challenges will be held on Tuesday, March 24. Presenting the online session will be Russell Jones, shareholder, Littler Mendelson. The hourlong webinar will begin at 1:00 pm ET.

The educational webinar explores what unique employment law challenges employers face in 2020. Among other considerations, employers must be mindful of social media, employment contracts, and factors specific to a multi-generational workforce.

“Media companies face a barrage of employee-related issues, many like those surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, are ones we’ve never had to consider before,” said Mary M. Collins, president and CEO of MFM and its BCCA subsidiary, the media industry’s credit association. “Russell’s webinar will help our members prepare for business as usual as well as for the unexpected.”
