Gunster's labor & employment law practice

Last year saw a dramatic increase in governmental activism in the workplace. With a new administration, we may see a very different approach.

This free, 90-minute webinar will provide an overview of the most important legal developments in 2016 and what you can expect in the months and years to come. It is presented by the Employment Law Alliance.

Wednesday, January 25, 2017
3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. EST


Webinar panelists will cover:

  • The EEOC’s strategic enforcement plan, including its new guidance on disability and national origin discrimination as well as hot topics in gender identity and sexual orientation;
  • Marijuana and the workplace: While still banned by federal law, 28 states and D.C. have made medical and/or recreational marijuana use legal; how to cope with the immense challenges this creates for HR departments;
  • Safety and health: Practical guidance on the new drug testing rules, incentive programs, retaliation claims and electronic record keeping;
  • Unions: What you can expect to happen with the NLRB’s recent rulings on joint employment, ambush elections, bargaining units, social media, permanent replacement of strikers and arbitration agreements and whether the new persuader rules are headed for the trash heap;
  • Wage and hour: The impact of recent litigation and the incoming Trump administration on the new salary basis test for the managerial exemption and whether you can expect other significant changes; and
  • Immigration: A review of DHS’s final regulations on highly skilled workers, what you need to know about other changes to federal immigration law, and how the new administration might impact these developments.

For those not able to attend the Jan. 25 webinar, it will be recorded and posted on the Employment Law Alliance website and you will be able to listen to the recording at your convenience within a day or two of the live event.
