In-Person and Virtual Monday 06/12/2023 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Business (Behavioral) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn some common HR scenarios that give rise to antitrust violations, how to avoid them, and what to do if they do. 

We study the concept of situational leadership.  Does the same apply to workplace ethics? Are they situational such that the answer can ever be, 'It depends'? What is the difference between ethics and morals? What are some common scenarios that implicate antitrust violations and what role do HR professionals play? And what protections do HR pros and others have if they blow the proverbial whistle? Join this interactive session as we review the latest federal agency guidance, court cases, proactive practices, and pitfalls to avoid.

Learning Objectives:

  • Distinguish between ethics and morals as it applies to the workplace;
  • Name and describe at least two common employment-related antitrust violations; and,
  • Provide in-house leadership with options for updating related HR policies and practices to reduce risk.
