Government agencies and courts have been busy.   The NLRB issues almost weekly new rulings and guidance that continue to surprise employers.  The following are the top five employment issues we have identified for 2016:

  1. Labor Board-Continues Attacks on Employer Work Rules, Handbooks.
  2. Wage and Hour-Are Your Supervisors Still Exempt Employees? What the New Wage and Hour Rules Mean.
  3. OSHA-Drug and Alcohol Testing Policies? What’s OSHA Got To Do With It? What If You Have a Workplace Accident?
  4. Joint Employer Status-Are You In Trouble If Your Temp Agency or Subcontractor Has an Employee Issue?
  5. What Else is New – Odds and Ends.

These are just a few of the headaches employers are facing these days. This program will help you prepare for the ever changing world of managing your workforce!

This program will specifically discuss the following:

  • Work rules that should not be in your employee handbooks
  • The new wage and hour rules and different methods for compliance
  • OSHA’s new stance on post-accident drug and alcohol testing policies
  • The factors to be considered when determining joint employer status and what such status can mean to you
  • Miscellaneous new employment issues, rulings and court cases

This program will be used to meet the objective of teaching human resource professionals, executives, managers, supervisors, business owners, in-house counsel, and other professionals how to comply with the new rulings and regulations being implemented by various government agencies.
