Florida recently passed the Individual Freedom Act, also known as the “Stop WOKE Act,” which makes it unlawful for an employer to require employees as a condition of employment to attend training on a variety of concepts, including some common elements of diversity training. Recently, litigation to strike the Act’s application to employers as unconstitutional was dismissed.

This free seminar explores what the Individual Freedom Act means for your nonprofit and its employees. You’ll learn more about the eight topics included in the law, permissible DEI training, enforcement, remedies, how to mitigate your risk, and the status of legal action against the Act.

This class is beneficial for human resource professionals, managers and anyone responsible for providing staff and DEI training.

Update:  On August 18, 2022, Chief US District Judge Mark Walker of the United States District Court of the Northern District of Florida blocked application of the Individual Freedom Act to employers, issuing a preliminary injunction in, Inc. v. Ron DeSantis, et al.  Judge Walker found the law to violate the First Amendment.  We will discuss the order and what it means for Florida employers, in addition to our summary of the elements of the bill.   Attendees will leave with a full understanding of the statute’s provisions, the recent judicial decision, and the ultimate outlook for this legislation. We look forward to having you join us!
