Husch Blackwell invites you to mark your calendar for our annual Labor & Employment Law Seminar.
2011 Legal and Regulatory Developments in Employment Law
From broadened anti-retaliation protections, to resolution of the "Cat's Paw" theory, to Governor Nixon's veto of the MHRA amendments, we will review the highlights from the Supreme Court and the local legislatures in the employment law area.
Social Media: The New Legal Landscape
Social media continues to be a burgeoning area in employment law. Should your company adopt a social media policy? How much can an employer regulate an employee's activity on social media sites? What are the latest pitfalls social media presents for employers today? We will address these and other questions.
Conducting an Effective and Defensible Investigation
Given the Supreme Court's decision in Staub v. Proctor Hospital, effective investigations are more important than ever before. We will review the legal and practical issues an employer must consider and the strategies for an effective and defensible investigation.
The New ADAAA Regulations: Are You in Compliance?
Under consideration for over a year, the EEOC finally issued its revised ADA regulations. The changes directly impact leave policies and practices as well as employers' reasonable accommodation obligations. Is your organization ready?
