Congress may be gridlocked, but the two other branches of government in Washington D.C. have been busy. The U.S. Supreme Court issued landmark rulings in 2015, including decisions on health care, same-sex marriage, and religious discrimination. Down the street, the U.S. Department of Labor has issued new proposed regulations on overtime exemptions, and the EEOC has taken the position that Title VII protects LGBT employees against discrimination. Learn how these and other developments will affect employers in Minnesota, and what employers should do.

Featuring keynote speakers and experts from around the country including guest speakers from the EEOC and outside organizations!

Topics Include:

  • The Affordable Care Act – It’s Here to Stay, So Get Used to It
