FMLA and ADA Case Law Update
Go beyond the theoretical with our presenters as they review actual recent case scenarios under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act and describe how they were resolved by the federal courts. The session will provide you with valuable guidance on the thorniest leave and accommodation issues facing employers today.

Adapting to the New Overtime Exemption Paradigm
Changes to the federal overtime regulations will impact every workforce, including millions of individuals. We will focus on the challenges when converting formerly exempt employees to non-exempt status, managing the morale and productivity concerns as employees’ exempt status evolves, and other issues that will be implicated by the new changes.

Pay Equity Preparation and Prevention
The gender pay gap is a hot media topic. The EEOC has announced that employer EEO-1s will require pay data starting in 2017. Plaintiffs are making headway in challenging pay practices once considered non-discriminatory. This session will provide insights into the mechanics of the law and practical solutions for your company.

Hot Issues– New Developments Concerning Medical Marijuana, Transgender/Sexual Orientation, and the Affordable Care Act
The final year of the Obama Administration is shaping up to be a challenging one for employers looking to remain compliant in an ever-evolving sea of new administrative activity. This interactive seminar will explore these recent changes, including

  • A practical look at LGBT issues in the workplace
  • The impact on employer policies and accommodation obligations as a result of the evolving legal landscape regarding medical and decriminalized marijuana
  • The state of the Affordable Care Act

Thorny Ethical Issues For Counsel and HR Professionals
This session will focus on the ethical dilemmas both in-house counsel and HR professionals face in a challenging legal environment during internal and external investigations, planning for reductions–in–force, structuring the workforce for the use of temporary and contingent employees, implementation of policies, managing litigation and providing general business advice. Topics will include:

  • Conflicts
  • Joint Representation
  • Inadvertent Disclosure of Information
