Presentation Description

The last few years have brought significant changes to the human resources legal landscape.  HR professionals need to know the new “quicksand” issues and how to avoid them with smart and compliant policies, procedures and decision making.

This program will highlight a host of new issues that affect your workplace including child labor laws, MEOC changes, immigration issues, social media and changes to arbitration laws.  We will also provide more in depth analysis of three key current issues for employers:  independent contractor status, the many faces of workplace retaliation and what the new concealed carry law means for employers.

You will learn:
  1. How to insulate decisionmakers from claims of retaliation
  2. Key concealed carry issues to address in your workplace policies
  3. How inaccurate assumptions about independent contractors land employers in trouble
