The Continued Expansion of Employee Rights
2010 saw a continued expansion of a wide range of employee rights, from increased incentives and protections for whistleblowers, to referrals by the DOL to outside attorneys, to limitations on arbitration agreements, to limitations on the use of credit reports. Learn about these expansions, how they may curtail your employment practices, and how you can still create reasonable expectations of your employees.

The New Era of Employee Health, Disability and Wellness
With a new presidential administration and a new Congress came several changes and developments in the area of health care, including to the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act and Employee Wellness programs. Learn about these changes and what you need to know to survive the current climate.

The Government Enforcement Landscape
Government agencies overseeing employers have seen increases in funding with encouragement to step up their enforcement actions. More EEOC charges are being filed, the investigations have increased, and settlement demands are going up. The DOL has increased enforcement of FLSA claims. Federal and state agencies have stepped up their scrutiny of independent contractors. Learn about the areas of increased government interest, what employers should do to avoid becoming the focus of investigations and how to best respond if they do.
