Program Agenda

One Year In: Labor & Employment Law Under President Trump
The Trump administration’s first year in office brought significant changes to labor and employment law. We will cover the latest developments including:

  • Important NLRB reversals on key Obama era rulings
  • Anticipated changes to the overtime rules and the future of the salary threshold
  • How legalized marijuana will impact your workplace and the safeguards you can use to protect your business
  • The EEOC’s newest initiatives and changes in discrimination and harassment law, including transgender accommodations
  • How to use the new federal law concerning confidential information and trade secrets to your advantage

Navigating the Workplace in the Age of #MeToo: A Panel Discussion
The rise of the #MeToo movement has created a ripple effect. All employers, large and small, must know how to respond to harassment allegations and ensure a safe and inclusive environment for employees. With extensive experience litigating these issues and counseling employers faced with these allegations, our panel will discuss best practices for:

  • Creating a safe work environment
  • Recognizing and understanding harassment in the workplace
  • Properly handling complaints and conducting investigations
  • Sexual harassment training and policies
  • Dealing with social media and inappropriate electronic communication

Is Big Brother Watching? Privacy in the Workplace
Electronic communications and new technologies are a part of the daily workday. How do you strike a balance between the employer’s right to monitor and an employee’s right to privacy? We will discuss privacy issues that frequently arise in the workplace and provide practical advice for employers to avoid common pitfalls relating to:

  • GPS Monitoring
  • Email, browser, and social media monitoring
  • Drug and alcohol testing
  • Criminal background checks
