HWL Jobs Wanted: Flexible Workplace (RECORDED)

Jobs Wanted: Flexible Workplace for Parents and Caregivers (RECORDED)

This program is a recording of the Live Seminar held on June 30, 2016. 
If you attended the live program; You cannot claim CLE for watching this recorded program.  

Parents who are raising children know the challenges: Juggling child care and sick days, suffering guilt trips, fighting pregnancy discrimination and "mommy track" bias, all while simply trying to be a good parent and good employee. And now many of us are in the "sandwich generation," raising children while also caring for elderly family members. Bias, discrimination and lack of accommodation for employees who are pregnant, parenting or caregivers can be outright illegal. These problems disproportionately impact women's income, respect and career advancement. 

Learn about current state and federal laws addressing these issues, new legislative initiatives for greater protections, and the status of the growing movement for paid family leave. These concerns have a long history in the women's rights movement, but have we really come a long way? There is still much to be done to create workplace flexibility that can assist all our employees, especially parents and caregivers.

Learn ten key strategies for implementing flexible workplaces that are being utilized by many Hawaii employers, including four Hawaii companies that recently received a national workplace flexibility award. What strategies can your workplace adopt to encourage retention and support for employees who are parents and caregivers? Come join us for a lively discussion of these parenting challenges and how to make your workplace more flexible and supportive for employees who are parents and caregivers.
