Description:

Now that new leaders are at the helm of the Department of Labor (DOL), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), what type of change can we expect in terms of regulatory enforcement and strategic priorities out of Washington, D.C.?

Are you ready for what the future holds? How are NLRB Chair Philip Miscimarra, Acting EEOC Chair Victoria Lipnic, and DOL Secretary Alexander Acosta expected to level the playing field for U.S. workplaces? How will they “stir” the pot? How will the Obama-era final overtime exemption rule fare once and for all?

Also, how will the NLRB deal with broad pro-employee protections afforded under Browning-Ferris, a ruling addressing joint employment, and other controversial rulings, such as D.R. Horton, which dealt with employment agreements’ class-action waivers?

Right now, there’s a hot debate going on in Congress over whether to permit employers to offer comp time instead of overtime. Where does the “new” DOL stand on that issue, and what can you expect in the coming months on this and other important labor and employment fronts.

The American Health Care Act has passed the House of Representatives. If it passed the Senate, President Trump will keep his campaign promise to repeal and replace Obamacare. What’s the practical impact that could have on your workplace?

Now’s the time to figure out the practical impact the change in leadership at the DOL, NLRB, and EEOC will have on regulatory enforcement, labor and employment-related rulemaking, and more.

Join us to learn how to stay focused and grounded as the feds see-saw over what to keep and what to un-do on the labor and employment front.

You’ll learn:

  • The latest on the American Health Care Act, including the impact it will have on workplaces if it becomes law
  • How NLRB Chair Miscimarra is expected to un-do Obama-era rulings granting broader section 7 employee protections under the National Labor Relations Act
  • Practical strategies for ensuring that your employment practices and policies don’t infringe on workers’ NLRA rights under currently enforceable rulings and orders concerning social media usage and other conduct
  • What’s happening right now with the Republican-backed comp-time bill, the Working Families Flexibility Act, which recently passed the House of Representatives
  • How the comp-time bill seeks to alter current overtime compensation rules
  • What’s likely to happen to the final overtime exemption rule, touted as a real game changer when it became final in 2016, now that DOL Secretary Acosta is at the helm
  • The future of EEO-1 reporting under Acting EEOC Chair Lipnic, who’s been a critic of the controversial reporting requirements set to take effect in March 2018

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
