Course Description

The legal landscape facing employers seems as difficult to navigate as it has ever been.  Keeping track of the ever-changing patchwork of federal, state and local laws governing the workplace may often seem like a full-time job whether you are a human resources professional, in-house attorney or  business owner.  Change appears to be the one constant.  As President Trump's first term comes to an end, employers will continue to closely track the changes taking place at the NLRB, the DOL and the EEOC.  At the same time, a number of states will continue introducing new laws and regulations governing workplaces across the country, making it more important than ever for employers to pay attention to the bills pending in the legislatures of the states where they operate.

Disciplining employees, a critical tool in enforcing workplace rules, has the Capture iii-potential to create problems, especially when relationships deteriorate and emotions run high. Even in situations where an employer is disciplining for the right reason, if it is handled incorrectly, a lawsuit or labor grievance could turn out to be costly. But in circumstances that warrant discipline, employers cannot just sit back. Productivity, employee morale, workplace culture, employee safety and health, and meeting goals are just some of the many considerations impacted by an effective employee discipline program. Consistent employee discipline can also benefit employers in litigation, union grievances, and inspections and investigations by the EEOC.

This is an interactive presentation using ripped-from-the-headlines issues that businesses and HR professionals are currently facing. Attendees will hear what are “hot topics” in labor and employment law in the courts, with the EEOC, the DOL, etc.

With laws protecting sexual harassment at workplace, me too campaigns, high level of media attention around it, their have been severe variety of litigation in the corporate and business arena which had never got any significant precedence.

Gave insightful information, I took this class so i could obtain knowledge regarding this subject matter. I am not in a firm or an accountant , but just wanted to learn about this subject. I am keeping the download for reference. This was a good class to help understand how intricate the reorting of household employees can be for both tax professionals and especially the families.

David presented the issues of household workers in a concise and informative way. There were a number of issues he covered that will help my clients this year, especially in light of the COVID-19 virus. Fortunately, we followed payroll rules, but didn't consider some of the non-taxable benefits, such as medical, to help clients save money. Thanks

I actually took this webinar for the CPE not thinking that it was that relevant. However, there are many changes that have occurred that I was not aware of and glad that I took this class. I know I will run into some clients where I can use this information. Thanks for being concise and right to the point

Great presentation pointing out important considerations in direct employment, especially wage and hour issues. I have had clients use this company for direct employment tax compliance and they all speak very highly of the company.

This was thoroughly and one of the better similar today I would hit it so far this year. It came close to home that early for me but several of my clients. I look forward to learning more about how this needs to be done

This was a fantastic webinar! The presenter used the time well to educate us rather than to sell us. I feel that I can trust the company that the Presenter represents because the presentation was high quality.
