Over the past year, court decisions, agency rulings, and regulatory revisions have fundamentally altered the labor and employment law landscape – and there’s more to come.  From the FLSA to the ADA, from the NLRB to the EEOC, from Sarbanes-Oxley to DOMA, ensuring that their businesses remain compliant in the ever-shifting world of labor and employment law keeps many an HR professional or in-house counsel busy. Very busy.

Mindful of the busy-ness of your business, Seyfarth’s DC-based team has developed a full-day conference, designed to get you up to speed on a wide variety of topics – and to knock out any of those lingering CLE obligations.

Please join us for a full day of learning and networking with your colleagues from around the D.C. Metro area, as we discuss:

Plenary Sessions

  • Advanced Leave and Accommodation Issues: Addressing Mental Disabilities, Workplace Violence, and Work at Home Requests;
  • The EEOC’s Enforcement Agenda and Recent Guidance; and
  • Wage & Hour Overtime Exemptions: Recent Developments and Expected Regulatory Revisions.

Breakout Sessions

  • Does Your Employee/Applicant-Facing Website and Other Technologies Have to Be Accessible to Individuals with Disabilities?;
  • Redefining Employment: Independent Contractors and Franchisee/Franchisor Issues;
  • Risky Business: What the Obama's Administration's "Year of Action" Means for Federal Government Contractors;
  • What Employers Need to Know and Do About the NLRB's Aggressive Agenda;
