Avoid Confusion & Ensure Compliance to Safeguard Your Student Staff

Compliance personnel at universities are grappling with the various challenges in adherence to the legal updates and laws concerning student employees. Misclassification, organizing rights, occupational safety, and the confounding of equal employment opportunity and equal educational opportunity laws can lead to non-compliance lawsuits and administrative nightmares. The confusion and frustration these laws cause – in addition to the mandate to comply with labor laws like minimum wage requirements and overtime regulations – pose ongoing challenges for institutions.

Gather your colleagues and join our expert presenter on Thursday, August 22, 2024, as she examines the laws that concern student employment on your campuses. She will provide a comprehensive breakdown of employee classification, safety, equal employment, and equal educational opportunity laws, and much more, to ensure that you and your colleagues understand all compliance implications. 

Instill confidence to address student employment compliance issues on your campus.
