Spring is nearly here, and that means MSEC’s annual Employment Law Update is right around the corner. Each year, our staff searches for the employment and labor law issues that are most significant for employers and human resource professionals. Our goal is to arm you with the knowledge to assess your organization’s potential liabilities and management obligations and help you navigate waters that are increasingly hostile to business.
2015 will bring new challenges for employers as federal and state legislation and regulatory proposals go into effect. The U.S. Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the National Labor Relations Board all have fresh ideas, none of which is designed to help employers. The U.S. Supreme Court is also deliberating decisions critically important to employers, including pregnancy accommodation obligations, liability for joint-employer status, and court review of EEOC conciliation obligations. These issues and more will be covered by our case, legislative, and regulatory update.
We will also provide informative and entertaining sessions on topics such as the new Colorado Wage Protection Act and the renewed focus on commissions, bonuses and tips; an update and review of significant cases decided after the Americans with Disabilities Act; a session that highlights the critical importance of credibility assessments in everyday employee decisions; and an update on what may be historic changes under the National Labor Relations Act with impacts on both union and non-union employers.
In addition, we will have a luncheon session focusing on a subject familiar to all human resource professional and anyone who manages employees: teams, the individuals who make them up, legal issues that might impact their structure, and how they might operate differently or better in the age of the knowledge worker.
