LEAP 2009

Under President Obama, labor and employment laws are undergoing what SHRM calls “the most sweeping HR-related changes in 30 years.”  Be ready to meet these changes (and challenges) head-on!

The election of Barack Obama, and the Democrats’ increased domination of both houses of Congress, means massive change in virtually every sector of business and government.  And perhaps no other area is impacted as radically as the field of employment and labor law.  Are you ready?

To help you prepare for what’s happening – and what’s GOING to happen – the Management Labor and Employment Roundtable is proud to present the Labor and Employment Law Advanced Practices Symposium (LEAP).

LEAP 2009 brings together nearly 40 of America’s top legal and HR minds to keep you out front on the coming changes – while giving you the opportunity to network with these experts AND your fellow HR pros.

Some of the topics we’ll be covering include:

  • D.C. Developments – The Latest News & What Employers Should Expect in 2010
  • Union Organizing – The Rules Have Changed (Are You Prepared?)
  • FMLA Update – New Rights, New Interpretations
  • Recordkeeping – How the New Ledbetter Fair Pay Act Changes What You Thought You Knew!
  • Discrimination “Hot Spots” – Disability and Religion
  • Workplace Harassment – New Claims, More Litigation
  • Jerks at Work – What’s an Employer to Do?
  • Immigration Law Update – Regulation, Enforcement, Recordkeeping and More
  • Web 2.0 and Employment Law – Blogs, Facebook, Twitter and More!
  • Avoiding the Wage & Hour “Collective Action” Crush
  • And Many Others!

Given the massive legislative, regulatory, and legal changes taking place, we are holding LEAP at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center – in the heart of our nation’s capital.  Conveniently located between the White House and Capitol Hill, you’ll benefit from our host hotel’s amenities and location – as well as the very special room rate we’ve negotiated for LEAP attendees.

In HR, labor and employment law these days, the only constant is change. One thing that won’t be changing, however, is our commitment to you.  We promise to continue to bring you the most informative, most entertaining, most actionable HR and employment law event anywhere.  You have my word.

I look forward to seeing you in Washington.
