DETROIT, Mich. –  Employers face new challenges and opportunities during a turbulent year. The coronavirus has been a game changer for many employers who have pivoted to an expanded remote workforce. Further, advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace is a call to action for employers to revisit policies and procedures.
Butzel Long is hosting its 33rd Annual Labor, Employment, Employee Benefits and Immigration Law Forum in a (virtual) format this year and will focus on key legal matters from 8 a.m. to Noon on Thursday, October 29, 2020.
The registration fee is $49 per person. Presentation recordings will be made available to those who have registered for the event, at a later date. For more information or to register online, visit For inquiries, contact Nairi Chopjian at

The virtual seminar will have a slightly different format this year. Butzel Long is asking participants to register for each session individually to give more flexibility in scheduling and to better distribute the continuing education credits. Attendees will be eligible for 1-3 HRCI and SHRM CE Credits, pending approval.

“Labor, employment, benefits and immigration issues are constantly evolving,” said Daniel B. Tukel, Chair of Butzel Long’s Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits Department. “We have developed six workshops to address the most pressing workplace issues impacting southeast Michigan employers.”

Participants should register for the "Welcome and Introduction" session and then register for one webinar in each Workshop Session.

Workshop session topics include:
  • Back to Work or Planning the Return to Work – What Now?
  • WHOOPS! Benefits Mistakes to Avoid During COVID
  • Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
  • COVID-19 and Immigration: Dealing with Unprecedented Issues in Uncertain Times
  • Do You Know Where Your Secret Sauce Is? (The thing that differentiates businesses in the marketplace and creates value for the organization)
