Program Agenda

Labor & Employment Law: A Look Back at 2016 and What to Expect Under the Trump Administration 
In this fast-paced, interactive session, we will discuss the latest developments covering a wide range of issues including:

  • Why a federal court judge in Texas blocked the nationwide implementation of the DOL’s new overtime rules on the eve of their effective date.
  • How Ivanka Trump inspired a proposal for federally-mandated paid maternity leave.
  • Trump’s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, and their likely impact on the new “quickie” election rules and other hot-button labor issues.
  • Maintaining a drug-free workplace after the widespread legalization of medical marijuana for recreational and medical purposes.
  • The dos and don’ts of accommodating transgender employees.
  • How the U.S. Supreme Court just made it easier for employees seeking to sue for constructive discharge claims.

Popcorn and Employment Law: HR Lessons from the Movies & Television - The Sequel 
Back by popular demand, we will once again use a series of clips from popular movie and television shows as the source material for our discussion. Who says that learning important labor and employment concepts has to be boring? In this entertaining session, instead of focus on legal jargon and mind-numbing regulations, we will focus on practical issues and nuts-and-bolts guidance. Topics covered will include hiring, counseling, firing, sexual harassment, overtime pay, and unfair competition.

Workplace investigations into allegations of discrimination, harassment, and internal misconduct are crucially important to avoiding legal liability for employers. But if they are done improperly, they can make a bad situation worse. This presentation examines the top ten ways employers mess up workplace investigations and explores ways to avoid them.
