On May 25th, employment law pros Dana Kravetz and Lara Shortz, both partners at Michelman & Robinson, LLP, presented a informative discussion, “Navigating the Flexible/Hybrid Workplace: A Roadmap for Employers,” that hit upon the following topics:
· The Home Office: How Did We Get Here?
· COVID-19: An Imperfect Testing Ground for the Work-From-Home Movement
· The Importance of Engagement: Fostering Integrated, Collaborative and

· Legal Considerations: Wage & Hour Law, Workplace Bias and the Like

Many thanks to these two thought leaders for sharing their critical insights on what every business needs to know. A recording of the presentation is available on the Los Angeles Business Journal website at labusinessjournal.com/events.
