Employment Law Update: What You Need to Know for 2020

Duration: 60 minutes

HR and legal experts agree: If you’re not keeping up on employment law changes and developing trends, you’re asking for trouble. Those who look to what they learned last year are putting their organizations at risk and can’t be relied upon to make bullet-proof decisions. You simply must stay up-to-date. This session will get you up-to-speed on the key employment law changes every HR professional and manager should understand to prepare for the coming year. (more details below)

* Approved for 1.0 recertification credit hour through HRCI & SHRM.


WHY ATTEND

Here’s the challenge: Many HR professionals and managers have a full workload that prevents them from investing the time necessary to keep pace with the changing employment law landscape. They do what they can but it isn’t always enough to ensure that they’ve covered every detail.

That’s why we’ve arranged this must-attend webinar with employment law expert Anniken Davenport. She’ll discuss what every organizational leader needs to know about what’s changed this year, and what to watch for in the months to come … especially several crucial Supreme Court cases on the docket for 2019 and 2020.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will learn:

  • Why the imminent revisions to the FLSA overtime regulations could mean a skyrocketing labor budget if you don’t prepare now, effective January 2020
  • What you should know about all the latest big employment law cases from 2019
  • If sexual orientation and gender identity are covered by Title VII’s sex discrimination provisions -- and details of the three Supreme Court cases examining this issue
  • How to comply with a crop of new guidelines for accommodating pregnant workers
  • What you need to know about an increase in GINA enforcement by the EEOC, including specific examples of employer conduct and some big legal wins
  • Details about a decade old unlimited break law you probably aren’t even aware of
  • Why some states are limiting your right to control grooming and hairstyles
  • What’s new in Social Media Law -- and what it means to you and your employees
  • What to expect from the new EEO-1 form that just went into effect
  • Why your organization might lose the right to ask about salary history
  • How the legalization of medicinal marijuana is reshaping workplace drug policies
  • Why you may not be able to ask about an applicant’s criminal history anymore
  • How you need to change your sexual harassment policies in light of the fallout from #MeToo

The bottom line: If this program helps you avoid even a single employment law misstep in the coming year, your investment of time and money will be repaid many times over.
