OKHR Conference & Expo

We’re heading back to Tulsa! Crowe & Dunlevy is once again proud to be the presenting sponsor of the 2022 OKHR Conference & Expo. We can’t wait to join more than 500 of Oklahoma’s human resource professionals in person (and virtually) April 4-7, 2022, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Register today and make plans to attend our breakout sessions, swing by booths 10 and 11 in the exhibit hall and round out the final day of the conference on a strong note with coffee, breakfast and our panel of Labor & Employment Practice Group attorneys to answer your employment law questions!

Breakout sessions on Wednesday, April 6, 2022:

Innovative Tactics and Techniques for Upping Your Unemployment Winning Percentage | 10:00 AM – Jaycee Booth and Michael W. Bowling
Statutorily, the deck is stacked against employers at the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission, but you can take steps to improve your winning percentage. This session will not only acquaint attendees with the nuts and bolts of the unemployment process (from initial claim to the Board of Review) but will also equip attendees to improve their odds of success in contesting unemployment appeals by providing guidance on successful approaches to initial responses, written appeals, and hearings.

Innovative Employment Law Solutions in 2022, the Year of the “New Normal” | 4:30 PM – Madalene A.B. Witterholt
To say 2021 was challenging to employers is quite an understatement.  This session will address cases of interest along with state and federal law changes to help employers look at policies and procedures for 2022. The discussion will include recent case studies, lessons learned and suggestions for best practices and policies. Topics may include Age Discrimination, DOL, non-solicitation agreements, pregnancy discrimination, workers’ compensation and more.
