    Sonal Shah was a well-received speaker we enjoyed last fall when she educated us on Transgender in the Workplace. She will return to speak to us about Documentation Aggravations & Obligations.

    HR professionals are tasked with drafting, handling and managing an incredible amount of documentation.  This includes employment applications, Form I-9s, offer letters, employment agreements, and disciplinary records, just to name a few. Sonal Shah, Senior Employment Law Counsel at the Management Association will take you to the next level in this essential session, leaving you confident and secure in your document management practices.  She will discuss which HR documentation is necessary and which is not; how to ensure that your documentation is thorough and legally complaint; and requirements and best practices for document retention.
