Make-up Webinar: 2011 Annual Labor and Employment Conference
September 28, 2011
If you missed our 2011 Annual Labor and Employment conferences that took place in June, or if you just want to stay informed of new developments, we are offering a make-up webinar.
Topics will include:
What's New in Social Media?
Employers' rights and obligations relating to employees' use of social media have been greatly clarified within the last year. Learn how disciplining employees can either be crucial in the defense of lawsuits or violate the law, and how valuable information posted on social media can be discoverable during litigation.
The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments.
Learn about the expanded definition of "disability," its practical implications, the scope of reasonable accommodations, and some recent federal court decisions.
Wage and Hour Update.
Wage and hour mistakes often result in significant liability for employers. Hear about recent developments in this area of the law including changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act that may undermine existing strategies for overtime compliance, new initiatives by states to root out misclassification of employees as independent contractors and for overtime purposes, and ways to minimize exposure to liability before employees sue or federal or state governments seek enforcement.
