Mark your calendars for April 29th! This is an in-person class and lunch is provided.
Governor Gianforte signed HB 254, with the most sweeping changes to the Wrongful Discharge from Employment Act that we have seen since it was enacted. While the legislation impacts several areas, a significant change is the extension of the default probationary period. As you know, in Montana we don’t have at will employment outside of an initial probationary period. HB 254 extends that initial default probationary period from 6 months to one year.
Top HR Headaches and How to Avoid them combines in-class learning with practical takeaways including how HB 254 should be integrated into your employment manual, offer letter, and other documents pertaining to a probationary period.
In this workshop you will learn about these 10 HR categories and why they’re important to know if you have employees.
