Pregnancy in the Workplace: Recent Developments in the Law
Speaker: Kristen Baylis

It is crucial that employers understand the rapidly evolving area of pregnancy discrimination in the workplace, especially in light of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Young v. UPS.  This session will explore the employers' obligation to accommodate pregnant employees under federal, state and local laws and provide strategic takeaways for avoiding pregnancy discrimination claims. Topics covered include the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (“PDA”), the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and Colorado laws.

Preparing for the Worst – Planning for, and reacting to an Active Shooter at your Workplace
Speakers:
Erik Dullea & Donna Pryor

It is a sad but stark reality that Americans face a perceived, if not actual, risk from terrorist attacks, or workplace violence involving firearms. Today, employers are taking steps to think and talk about these frightening scenarios in an effort to better equip their workforce with ideas and ways to respond to such a crisis. This session will discuss risk factors contributing to workplace violence, OSHA’s requirements for minimizing workplace violence, training people to recognize potential signs of violence, and the federal government’s recommended best practices when facing the threat of an active shooter.

Pay Equity – State Laws, EEO-1 Pay Reporting & Increased Enforcement
Speakers: Mickey Silberman & Jennifer Seda

President Obama has made eliminating the “pay gap” his top civil rights enforcement priority at the end of his term. EEOC’s proposal to require annual submission of pay data for all employees and the new California Fair Pay Act (and "copycat" acts in many other states) change the pay game.  These new reporting requirements and employee-friendly laws make it easier to bring and win class-action pay discrimination claims.  This session will discuss these new, powerful tools the enforcement agencies and plaintiff’s class counsel are using and how employers should proactively prepare and respond.
