WASHINGTON (PRWEB) June 06, 2016
Kelly Dobbs Bunting from the global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP will participate in the 2016 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Conference & Exposition from June 19-22 in Washington, D.C. The conference is the largest HR event in the world, which offers HR professionals targeted strategies and practical takeaways to achieve their goals.
On June 21, Bunting will present "Updating Your Employee Handbook and Harassment Training to Include the LGBT Workforce.” Bunting’s session will focus on recent court and agency decisions and guidance regarding gay marriage, sexual orientation discrimination, so-called “bathroom laws,” and other hot-topic LGBT-related issues, and how that impacts an employer’s company handbook, code of conduct, training policies, and corporate procedures.
Bunting, a Labor & Employment shareholder, focuses her practice on: class and collective employment-related actions; wage and hour issues; discrimination, harassment and retaliation avoidance; labor issues; internal audits and investigations; global employment issues and compliance. She is a well-regarded trainer on discrimination/harassment and best practices for HR and company management, and regularly counsels global clients on handbook and policy issues, HR fundamentals, and supervisor liability. Bunting has twice been ranked as “recommended” in the 2014 and 2015 editions of The Legal 500 United States for her work in Labor and Employment: Workplace and Employment Counseling and is a member of Philadelphia’s first-tier ranked Labor & Employment Practice by U.S. News and Best Lawyers.
