With an increase in more flexible, people-first initiatives like unlimited PTO and lengthy parental leave, compliance can get tricky.

In this session, Trunk Club HRIS Specialist Andrew Anderson Devine, Facebook Payroll Director Priti Kung, Heluna Health HRO Tim Seifert, and Replicon CEO Raj Narayanaswamy discuss best practices to maintain a thriving, innovative culture while simultaneously abiding by labor laws, and leveraging modern HR technologies in support of these goals.
