HR On (Mock) Trial - Racial Discrimination and More: Who, What, How, Why?

It’s every HR practitioner’s worst nightmare: a day in court. In this exciting, interactive session, you will experience first hand what happens when employees file a lawsuit. The case will focus on allegations of a hostile work environment, racial discrimination, and unlawful retaliation that have been made by two employees who are working in a manufacturing operation. 

The plaintiffs say numerous reports were made to HR resulting in no corrective action and that’s why they filed this law suit. This mock trial delves into the details of “who did what” and examines evidence presented by both sides. Join Richmond SHRM for a front row seat to the trial, closed camera viewing of the jury’s deliberation and the ultimate decision.

When Thursday, September 20
7:30 am - 10:30 am

Where: Dominion Energy
5000 Dominion Blvd
Glen Allen, VA
