We aren’t even half way through 2015, and employers have already seen significant court decisions, administrative initiatives and new employer burdens, leading to many questions. Please join Seyfarth Shaw for an informative discussion about what is happening and the impact on employers.  Topics will include: 
  • Accommodating pregnant employees: Recent Supreme Court guidance and implementing best practices  
  • New expedited union election rules and related burdens: The most significant change in traditional labor law in decades 
  • Expanding same-sex and LGTB rights in the workplace: New FMLA rights and protection for transgendered employees 
  • The DOL’s imminent and sweeping changes to the FLSA “white-collar” exemptions: Insights on what to expect and how to start preparing 
The presentation is designed to educate and assist both legal and non-legal professionals. 
CLE/HRCI Credit: Texas CLE is pending approval. Those needing HRCI credit will be issued an attendance certificate that can be used towards recertification
