Event Details

It's time to learn, friends! OrgOrg is teaming up with our friends at StartupHR and HR2.0 to drop some knowledge on all of our faces, because Leave Policies (Parental and otherwise) are a hot topic these days. We work at growing companies, often with flexible time off what happens when you need to consider compliance as well? How do you deal with extended periods of leave?
We're planning to cover: how (and when) to introduce extended leave policies, how to be compliant but generous, the difference between protected *time off* and protected *right to leave*, maternity vs paternity vs parental leave, and more! Our panelists will talk about their experiences and answer your questions -- we want to make sure to discuss the topics that are most relevant to to you, so please email your questions to <3%20me"> and we'll add them to the list!
