On January 15, 2010 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern, Kristin McGurn will participate in a webinar by Denterlein Public Affairs on "Healthcare Under the Employee Free Choice Act: What You Need to Know."
The webinar is for healthcare professionals interested in the intersection of public policy and human resources, it has been a remarkable quarter of watching the Employee Free Choice Act's journey through Congress. The American business community has brought all of its resources to bear in opposition to the Act, and that push appears to be working. Signs that the employee Free Choice will shift its shape have begun to appear on the horizon.
It is critical, now, more than ever, that healthcare institutions are not lulled into a false sense of security by this news. It remains very likely that a major overhaul of national labor law will be passed during this Congress. That overhaul will have significant effects on the way that healthcare providers will relate to their employees.
This session will help participants understand the specific issues that significant labor reform will engender in the health care field, especially in the areas of human resources and communications. We will also hear a case study of how a major hospital association has proactively tackled these challenges.
The webinar will help provider leadership to:
- Understand the current legislative landscape around the Employee Free Choice Act
- Determine the specific labor challenges that passage of the Act will pose to hospitals and healthcare institutions
- Understand real world strategies currently in play in Massachusetts - the first state in the nation to pass healthcare reform.
- Design communications strategies to effectively communicate about these critical issues – not only with employees, but with other critical stakeholders who may be forgotten
