Federal Employment Law Roundup 2017: What's New, What's Out, And How To Ensure Compliance

Webinar: ID# 1023554
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Although a last-minute ruling put a stop (for now, anyway) to the long-anticipated overtime rule changes, plenty remains for employers to stay on top of and worry about as we enter a new year:
  • Where will the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission focus its enforcement efforts in 2017

  • How can you ensure that your practices and policies relating to transgender status, pregnancy, and other potentially thorny areas don't raise legal red flags?

  • In what direction will the Trump Administration's new labor secretary steer the “DOL enforcement ship”?

  • What’s the likely fate of the Affordable Care Act (and its looming Cadillac Tax)—and what will the practical impact on employers’ compliance obligations be?

  • Is the National Labor Relations Board’s regulatory enthusiasm likely to wax or wane?

  • Finally, don’t forget about those blocked overtime changes – what’s going to happen with them long-term? Will they eventually be implemented, or fade away entirely?
Join us to find out what you need to know about updates to federal employment law for the coming year and what resulting changes you may need to make to your policies and practices.

Learning Objectives:
  • The latest on federal employment regulations and laws affecting your workplace in 2017
  • How to update employment policies so they’re in legal check with federal law and EEOC enforcement guidance
  • Tripwires under the FMLA, ACA, FLSA, and other federal laws to avoid this coming year

  • And much more!
