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.”
