Shareholder Edward C. Jepson will present at the multi-day EEOC EXCEL (EXamining Conflicts in Employment Law) Conference 2017 on June 29th in Chicago. The EXCEL Conference is where EEO, HR, and ADR practitioners from private and federal organizations gather for four days of outstanding education, training and professional development. There are three plenary sessions, two specialty tracks, and over 50 open workshops that give participants the needed knowledge, and skills to enhance their performance, and meet the evolving demands of today’s workplace.

Mr. Jepson’s workshop, “Mental Health Conditions in the Workplace: What Employers Need to Know” will address the issues in regards to the myths and stereotypes surrounding individuals with mental health that, when acted on, can create a huge risk for an employer. These issues include performance, reasonable accommodation, workplace violence stereotypes and fears. Mr. Jepson will provide practical guidance so employers can create a culture of acceptance and value while minimizing EEO risks.
