Looking ahead in 2015, savvy employers and employees are paying close attention to the current hot-button labor and employment law issues including: aggressive federal agencies; rampant state legislation; social media; criminal background checks; crisis management; FMLA expansion (sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking); enhanced pregnancy protections; transgendered employees; continuation of the misclassification campaign; and supreme court decisions.

Employment law challenges present risks and often divert attention from other important business matters. Staying on top of the latest developments and looking ahead is essential to avoiding the courthouse.

This session will break down the top workplace legal developments at this juncture and explain how recent regulatory changes and state and federal case holdings affect your workforce. This session will also address some best practices recommended for employers to take for compliance and explore ways employers may avoid liability with preventive strategies.
