Which Trump administration actions are currently affecting HR? What's the future of issues like overtime law, sexual harassment and paid maternity (and paternity) leave? What's the latest on misclassification?

Join your peers to discover everything you need to know about the HR-related requirements coming from the DOL, EEOC, NLRB, IRS, Capitol Hill and the Supreme Court, plus trends in state/local legislatures.

Your 2019 mid-year HR update will cover these topics and more:

  • Overtime. Trump's DOL has issued proposed regulations that amount to a complete rewrite of the federal overtime rules. What's the timeline … and what surprises does the plan include? The agency has proposed new salary levels, but there's a new bonus credit, too.  Learn what's coming next – and how you must prepare.
  • Sexual harassment. The explosion of harassment headlines has given your employees more courage to sue. How does this increased scrutiny translate into new training and monitoring requirements by Congress, states and the EEOC? And what should your organization be doing now to prevent a #MeToo complaint?
  • Overtime. Trump's DOL is taking a shot at another complete rewrite of the federal overtime rules. What's the timeline … and what will that proposal say? The agency is considering new tests, new salary levels and a pro-business overhaul. Learn what's coming next – and how to prepare.
  • Your disability policy. Employers are paying millions to settle charges that their policies requiring workers to be 100% healed before returning to work are illegal under the ADA. Update your policies NOW … here's how.
  • U.S. Supreme Court. What key employment law cases on the docket will impact your compliance responsibilities? What will upcoming decisions on these sexual orientation cases mean for your employer policies?
  • Immigration. I-9 audits and workplace investigations have spiked by 400%. How can you avoid getting caught up in the big crackdown on undocumented workers (and the employers who hire them)?
  • Labor laws affecting all. The NLRB went wild in recent years, forcing changes to your employee handbook, dress code, at-will statements, social media and more. What's next now that the Trump administration has changed the composition of the NLRB, issued new rulings and hired a new general counsel …and what steps should you take? Should you rewrite your handbook – again?
  • EEOC's litigation blitz. The EEOC has been on a lawsuit binge. Learn how to rewrite your policies based on new EEOC rules, including those relating to gay and transgender workers, sexual harassment, disabled workers and equal-pay claims.
  • New pay equity laws. The #MeToo movement is also leading to changes in equal-pay laws, including bans on questions about applicants' salary histories. Find out what's next for national, state and local laws.
  • Marijuana. The shifting laws on marijuana affect your policies, drug testing and ADA compliance. How should you change your drug-testing policies?
  • 'Family' policies. Paid leave laws, mothers' rooms, pregnancy bias 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 laws. How to react to this movement, plus the 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 July 12, join us for this empowering event so you can stay up-to-date, in compliance and out of court!
