    Here are the topics for the 3 General Sessions:

    Sex, Lies & INVESTIGATE THIS!!!  Driven by video vignettes, this session reviews and dissects a workplace sexual harassment complaint that comes from an under-performing employee who was in the midst of being counseled.

    The Collision of MySpace, YourSpace & OurSpace  Social media in the workplace continues to be a hot topic with ever-changing challenges. This session will walk you through the numerous issues that employers and HR professionals must be aware of when trying to stay on top of the social media phenomenon.

    Lessons From the Real World  This will be an "around the horn" session where you learn from the mistakes and challenges of others by examining some real life scenarios that have recently played out in the court system - like the Paula Deen lawsuit.  This will be a fun an interactive look at common issues you face every day.

    A continental breakfast and lunch are included!  This event takes the place of our regular October meeting.
