    Breakfast Meeting

    Join the Fredericksburg SHRM Chapter for our March meeting as Randy Sparks discusses, "Symbolism in the Workplace: A New Way to Discriminate?" 

    Emojis, screensavers, clothing, posters, pictures, office decorations … Almost anything can have symbolic meaning, and, in this day and age, there is a heightened awareness for what is appropriate in the workplace when it comes to symbols. This session will get you thinking about the various ways symbols are present in your workplace and highlight how to deal with potentially problematic symbols in the workplace.

    Randy is a member of the Labor and Employment Law Practice Group at Kaufman & Canoles. He concentrates his practice in employment litigation, representing employers in employment discrimination, sexual harassment, breach of employment contract, non-compete, and wage and hour claims before various state and federal courts and administrative agencies. Randy also advises and trains clients on lawful employment practices and other workplace issues.

    We would like to thank Kaufman & Canoles for being our Platinum sponsor!

    Both SHRM & HRCI recertification credits will be available for this meeting.
