          "The Law or Nah: Debunking Employment Law Myths"

          Program - MC-SHRM General Meeting   9:05*AM-10:15AM (*Registration 9:00AM-9:05AM)

          Presented By: Dustin A. Paschal, Attorney - Simon Paschal PLLC

          Over time, best practices presented to HR professionals have evolved into "legal requirements" that HR mistakenly believes it must follow.  While best practices are best practices for a reason, and should generally be followed, it is not always possible for HR to follow a particular best practice.  This presentation focuses on various employment law requirements and busts the myths about mistaken beliefs regarding legal practices.

          Participant Learning Objectives:

          • Identify legal requirements that exist in the workplace and how best to comply with them
          • Assess areas of concern that many believe are legal requirements but actually are not
          • Determine how to apply this dichotomy of legal requirements vs. best practices

          Dustin A. Paschal, is an Attorney and a founding member of Simon | Paschal PLLC, a boutique employment law firm in Frisco, Texas.
