The New HR Rules:
Employment Law Update 2017
Keeping up with employment law changes is an important part of your job. HR has seen an explosion of new rules and regulations from Washington in the past few years … and you'll see many more starting Jan. 20.
Are you in compliance? How should you prepare for the big changes coming in the next few months?
On Friday, January 20, join us for a special Inauguration Day webinar, The New HR Rules: Employment Law Update 2017. It's your all-in-one update on the key regulatory changes affecting your organization—and what you need to do to get in compliance. Your boss will expect you to know … and this webinar is the simplest way to update yourself on HR compliance for 2017.
Join your peers to discover everything you need to know about the HR-related requirements coming from the DOL, EEOC, NLRB, IRS, Supreme Court and the trends in state/local legislatures.
The first key question: Which of the Obama administration alphabet soup of regulations and executive orders will President-elect Trump choose to keep or trash? And will he add paid maternity leave? New I-9 requirements? Veterans as a protected class in discrimination lawsuits?
We'll cover these topics and more:
- Health care. What's the future of the ACA, and what should HR be doing now?
- Overtime. A court halted the landmark overtime rules set to take effect December 1. What's your best course of action?
- Independent contractors. With the new revised guidance, is it time for a classification audit?
- Labor law/unions. The NLRB went wild in the past few years, adding new mandates to every American workplace. Learn the required changes to your employee handbook, dress code, at-will statements, social media and more … and how they will change in 2017
- EEOC priorities. Example: how to rewrite your policies based on the EEOC's new rules on the hiring and managing of gay and transgender workers
- Supreme Court. Understand the impact of recent U.S. Supreme Court cases on your employment policies
- Federal contractors. Obama has heaped new mandates onto federal contractors—which will Trump undo?
- Marijuana. The shifting laws on marijuana affect your policies, drug testing and ADA compliance
- 'Family' policies. Paid leave laws, mothers' rooms and other new rules affecting employees with families could be changing in the months to come
- 'Scheduling bias.' What is it and why should you care?
- Ban the Box. How to react to this movement, plus new unemployment anti-bias laws
Your executives expect you to stay up-to-date on compliance issues … and know what's coming down the pike. You can learn about these requirements the easy way (a quick 75-minute briefing) or the hard way (lots of research or, worse, an unexpected legal claim).
Plus, this interactive webinar allows you to get answers to all your employment law questions from a true expert, attorney Anniken Davenport, editor of the HR Specialist: Employment Law newsletter. And because this is a webinar, there is NO LIMIT to the number of colleagues you can invite to join you.
On Jan. 20, join us for this empowering event so you can stay up-to-date, in compliance and out of court!
