"New Wine in Old Wineskins"

Who Should Attend?

Business managers, human resources professionals and supervisors will learn how to run their businesses effectively while complying with a dizzying array of legal requirements.

About the Program

New technology has caused tremendous changes in the workplace. The laws governing the workplace generally pre-date this new technology. The applicability of those laws to new and evolving technologies present formidable challenges for employers. We will discuss practical solutions for new workplace issues:

New Twists on Discrimination Laws

Genetic screening, social media harassment, expansive definitions of disability and reasonable accommodations – this session will address how to manage and train employees to avoid legal difficulties

Wage & Hour Law - the Latest Morass

New technologies keep workers away from a central office. We will discuss how to manage off-site employees and make sure that you properly categorize their status.

National Labor Relations Act - A New Board with New Initiatives?

In the latest Senate compromise, President Obama will finally be able to have two new NLRB members—finally allowing the Board to act without legal questions about its authority. We will explain likely new initiatives such as:

  • Concerted Activity and Facebook
  • Use of the Company’s e-mail system to communicate with employees about Union Organizing
  • Electronic posting of notices
  • Problem with “virtual voting” that resulted in lack of quorum
  • What the Board will likely enforce

  • How to correctly complete the new I-9 form and avoid significant penalties
  • The top 10 strategies for immigration compliance

Employee Benefits: ACA/DOMA Create Complexities for Employers

The Supreme Court invalidated parts of the Defense of Marriage Act requiring employers to review all of their federally regulated employee programs and raising questions about tax refunds, marriage recognition and plan amendments. Learn how you have to change your benefits plans. Although the IRS has suspended penalties for Obamacare’s employer mandate, much of the ACA marches on. We will advise you on how to comply with these new realities.
