Employment Law Update 2016: The New HR Rules
Keeping up with employment law changes is an important part of your job … and HR has seen an explosion of new rules and regulations from Washington in the past few years.
Are you in compliance?
With Congress stuck in partisan quicksand, the Obama administration has used an alphabet-soup of regulators—DOL, EEOC, NLRB, IRS—to carry out an aggressive worker-friendly agenda.
New requirements for employers are also coming from key U.S. Supreme Court rulings. Even state and local governments are turning up the heat.
It's vital for you to know what's going on … and how to respond.
On Friday, March 18, join your peers to discover everything you need to know about the HR-related requirements coming from the DOL, EEOC, NLRB, IRS, Supreme Court and the trends in state/local legislatures.
Employment Law Update 2016: The New HR Rules is your all-in-one update on the key regulatory changes affecting your organization—and what you need to do to comply. We'll cover these topics and more:
- New overtime-eligibility rules—who's covered & how to prepare
- Revised independent contractor guidance—do you need a classification audit?
- The NLRB has gone wild—learn the required changes to your dress code, at-will statements, civility rules, social media, union organizing, employee handbooks and more
- New EEOC rules on the hiring and managing of gay and transgender workers
- Impact of recent U.S. Supreme Court cases on your employment policies
- Dramatic new requirements for federal contractors
- Marijuana's shifting laws and the impact on drug testing, the ADA and your policies
- Paid leave laws, mothers rooms and other new rules affecting employees with families
- What is "scheduling bias” and why should you care?
- The Ban the Box movement and new unemployment anti-bias laws
- And much more
You can learn about these requirements the easy way (a quick 75-minute briefing) or the hard way (lots of research or, worse, an unexpected legal claim).
Plus, this interactive webinar allows you to get answers to all your employment law questions from a true expert, attorney Anniken Davenport, editor of the HR Specialist: Employment Law newsletter.
Join us for this empowering event so you can stay up-to-date, in compliance and out of court!
