Experts from Caravel will discuss the best practices, and steps you can take to proactively protect your company from legal pitfalls.

About this Event

Is your company susceptible to legal pitfalls? Have your contracts and policies been updated recently to reflect legislative changes and new developments in the law? Do you know your obligations to your employees as an employer in 2021? With legal requirements changing frequently, companies can find themselves in legal hot water if they aren’t proactive in ensuring they are up to date. This webinar series will be a good refresher and “need to know” so your company can spend money on growth and development, not unexpected litigation, disputes or regulatory penalties.

During this discussion you will gain an understanding of:

  • What a growing company needs to know about employment law, commercial/contracts, adverting and privacy
  • Common legal pitfalls growing companies face
  • Methods to protect your business from potential legal repercussions down the road
