Your mid-year update is here. Check to make sure you're in compliance with this all-in-one training session. Topics include:

  • Family policies. In response to the pandemic, Congress passed expansive new laws providing at least partially paid leave and expanded FMLA leave for millions of American workers. Employers who never had to worry about the FMLA before now must. Make sure you know what policies you need to change to keep up.
  • Overtime. The Department of Labor issued final regulations that amount to a complete rewrite of the federal overtime rules. Then employers began sending workers home to telework. Find out why that impacts how you pay overtime under the new rules.
  • New Supreme Court rulings. How will you implement imminent decisions on sexual orientation, gender identity and Dreamers protection? You need a contingency plan whether the court expands employer rights or takes them away.
  • The shifting laws on marijuana. How should you change your drug-testing policies and ensure you’re in ADA compliance?
  • New ways you can get sued. The national pandemic emergency has now spawned a slew of novel worker claims, including workplace safety, harassment and retaliation.
  • Scheduling bias. What is it and why should you care?
  • EEOC's litigation blitz. 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.
  • Disability policies. Employers are paying millions to settle charges because of policies that are illegal under the ADA. Could you be next? And what about all your anxious workers, reluctant to return to work? Do you know whether they’re disabled and what their rights are?
  • Sexual harassment. How does the increased scrutiny translate into new training and monitoring requirements by Congress, states and the EEOC? Learn why you need a contingency plan before it happens.
