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.
