We are writing to invite you to a free 90-minute webinar on Thursday, January 28, 2016 entitled, “A Year in Review: Key U.S. Labor and Employment Developments in 2015 and What to Expect in 2016.” There were significant labor and employment developments in the U.S. during 2015 and we expect to see at least as much action in 2016. This webinar will provide a national perspective on the following topics:
- EEO developments: increased protections for women – particularly pregnant employees and new mothers – along with higher expectations for accommodating religious practices and disabilities.
- The newest wage and hour claims being pursued and practical tips for avoiding the most common mistakes when calculating hours worked and wages owed.
- Tactics being utilized by businesses to misappropriate trade secrets and steal away key personnel from competitors – practical strategies you can employ to minimize these problems.
- How the NLRB is flexing its muscles to aid with unionization and what you can do right now to help maintain your non-union status.
- Continued legal and media attacks on the use of independent contractors and the outsourcing of management functions – how you can avoid being the next poster child of worker “exploitation.”
Please share this invitation with as many of your colleagues as you want and encourage them to also register. If you will be in the same room listening together, only one person needs to register. If you will be in different offices or locations, each person will need to register. You will view the power point slides via your computer and can listen either via your computer speakers or the telephone.
If it is difficult for you or others to attend, the webinar will be recorded and posted on the ELA website within a week of the live event; you are welcome to listen to it there.
