Name: What the #%!*: Political Correctness in the Workplace
Date: June 1, 2018
Time: 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM EDT
Marc Sheiner, Esquire (Duane Morris LLP)
Event Description:

Come join us and our co-sponsor, Hire One, for breakfast and to find out what Marc Scheiner, Special Counsel for Duane Morris LLP, has to say to say about political correctness in our workplaces.

Political correctness (or the lack thereof) is a year-round and non-election-related concern, often having little to do with politics.  Heated discussions of social hot-button topics, off-hand comments about the news, different management and personality styles – all of these come together in our increasingly diverse workplaces to create potential problems.  In this session, we’ll explore the meaning of political correctness and to what extent (and how) we can deal with it in our organizations.  What is the balance between creating an open, more-inclusive working environment and potentially having our employees feel unable to express themselves?  How can we set the proper tone for our employees?  And does it even matter? 


Speaker Info: Marc J. Scheiner practices in the area of employment law,  counseling clients on a variety of employment issues. He represents clients in employment litigation matters and trains human resources professionals, in-house counsel and supervisors on a range of workplace topics. Mr. Scheiner works with clients to ensure compliance with Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act and ADAAA, Family and Medical Leave Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Equal Pay Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act and various state and local laws. He also assists clients in reviewing and drafting employment policies, handbooks, employment agreements, noncompete agreements and severance agreements.
