This year was another busy one for employment professionals. The Department of Labor continued its crack down on misclassification, wage and hour court filings reached a record high, and Illinois became the second state in the U.S. to ban employers from asking job applicants for their Facebook passwords. And, of course, the Presidential election dominated the headlines. What can employers expect in 2013 and beyond?
Find out at our 90-minute briefing when our employment lawyers recap the most significant legal developments of the year and help you anticipate and prepare for the challenges ahead as President Obama starts his second term. This session will help you jump start your efforts to update your policies and procedures to account for the recent and future changes that show no signs of slowing down.
Topics will include:
• Latest developments on employment arbitration agreements, whistleblowers, wage and hour requirements, social media policy and criminal background checks.
• What the EEOC, NLRB, DOL, OSHA and OFCCP will be focusing on in the year ahead.
• New employee benefit requirements, including service provider and participant fee disclosure and compliance with healthcare reform.
• Global mobility and immigration trends, including alternative visa strategies for coping with H1B shortages, forecasting employment-based immigration quota wait times, immigration compliance best practices and anticipated immigration reform.
