#108 – Guess the Notice!

HR Power Lunch

Employment lawyer and wannabe gameshow host Jordan Lester brings us the latest version of his gameshow series: Guess the Notice!

In year’s past, Jordan has brought HRPA such wildly popular employment law-themed games as Cause or No Cause? and Discrimination or No Discrimination?. This year, Jordan will be testing HRPA members on their ability to guess the common law notice period for dismissed employees.

Some organizations will be navigating a re-opening in a more strategic approach and Guess the Notice! will get attendees thinking about the art of calculating notice periods.
