Recent developments in the law will have a profound and lasting impact on the workplace. Join us as we welcome corporate decision makers, in-house counsel, business owners, human resources professionals, and others to attend, learn, and discuss issues challenging today’s employers.

What You’ll Learn

The EEOC Comes Calling: The Growth and Expansion of ADA Investigations.
An overview of one of the EEOC’s top enforcement priorities — systemic litigation under the ADA, highlighting ADA practices that are prompting systemic investigations, and ways the EEOC transforms individual charges into systemic investigations.

Successfully Dealing with the Changing NLRB
2016 continues to present challenges for both union and non-union employers. The “quickie election” rule has been in effect for more than a year, and the NLRB continues to redefine workplace law in a series of groundbreaking decisions, particularly regarding employee handbooks and rules of conduct. The presidential election adds a further cloud of uncertainty. We will help to educate attendees about many of the changes in the law and the development of best practices for complying with them.

The Top Ten Ways to Get Yourself into a Wage and Hour Class or Collective Action or DOL Investigation
The proper payment of employees continues to be one of the most litigated areas in employment law, with no signs of slowing down. In this presentation, participants will learn about the most common wage and hour mistakes that lead to class litigation or investigations by the U.S. Department of Labor or Nevada Labor Commissioner, and how to avoid them.

Pay Equity is “Comp”licated: New Laws, New Reporting & How to Protect your Organization
The federal government and many states are focusing on equal pay issues. We will discuss what you need to know about the law and how to minimize exposure to wage discrimination and benefit claims.

Cyber Bullying and Data Security in the Age of Social Media
How can you make certain that your company will never experience a data breach? You can’t! Data breaches are a real threat to every company and are increasing rapidly. During this session, employers will learn best practices for handling a data security breach, including identifying a data breach, understanding how a data breach occurs and managing the three critical phases of a data breach. This session will provide guidance on conducting a risk assessment to develop policies and procedures to address gaps in your security system and to train employees on how to handle breaches. In addition, this session will cover the elements of an effective social media policy and how to identify, prevent and respond to cyber bullying in the workplace through investigations, disciplinary actions and terminations.

LGBTQ: Managing an Evolving Workforce
In this rapidly evolving area of law, it’s important for employers to have a clear understanding of their responsibilities and expectations with regard to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees. This session will review sexual orientation and transgender terminology, provide an overview of gender discrimination laws, as well as sexual stereotyping and transgender cases, and discuss how these laws and cases impact workplace policy. We will also provide guidance for employers to prepare for on-the-job transitions and give advice on how to promote an inclusive, respectful culture.

This program may qualify for up to 4.75 credit hours of Nevada CLE, SHRM PDCs, and general HRCI recertification credits toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR through the HR Certification Institute.
