Description: Many employers and their inside counsel have heard of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, but have no idea what those terms means or how they can apply to workplace law.
Our interactive webinar will help you navigate this evolving area of workplace law, covering the following:
  • Blockchain and Cryptocurrency 101: We will provide simple and understandable explanations of blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, smart contracts, NFTs, and other important terms to help orient those newer to the space.
  • We will discuss a variety of potential use cases for this technology in the employment context, including paying employees in bitcoin and potential use cases for blockchain, smart contracts, NFTs and more.
  • While this technology has significant upside, we will cover some of the potential pitfalls and challenges of adoption in the workplace, as well as considerations for employers and counsel when evaluating whether implementation is right for your company.
