Employment Law Updates

The simplest way to update your employment law compliance.

Understanding the complex details of employment law is key to properly applying it to your company policies and practices. As legislation continues to be passed on both the federal and state level, make sure you’re in compliance with The New HR Rules.

This comprehensive, online training session is your all-in-one-update on key legislative and regulatory changes that can impact your organization - and what you need to do to get in compliance.

Just one hour long, and accessible within a few clicks, this might just be the easiest way to update yourself, your team or your whole company.

New year, new HR rules. Check to make sure you're in compliance with this all-in-one training session. Topics will include:

  • Family policies. Paid leave laws, mothers' rooms, pregnancy bias and other new and changing rules.
  • Overtime. The Department of Labor has issued final regulations that amount to a complete rewrite of the federal overtime rules. What's the timeline … and what surprises does the plan include?
  • 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.
  • 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)?
  • Disability policies. Employers are paying millions to settle charges because of policies that are illegal under the ADA. Could you be next?
  • New pay equity laws. As conversations continue about equal pay, new laws are emerging, including bans on questions about applicants' salary histories. Find out what's next for national, state and local laws.
  • The shifting laws on marijuana. How should you change your drug-testing policies and ensure you’re in ADA compliance?
  • Ban-the-Box laws. How to react to this movement, plus the new unemployment anti-bias laws.
  • 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.
