Labor and Employment Update 2017: Change Is the New Status Quo

May 17, 2017
7:45 AM - 12:00 PM

Please join Husch Blackwell attorneys for our annual half-day seminar on current issues in labor and employment law.


  • 2017 Legal Update: Discussion will include the status of proposed changes to a variety of federal labor and employment regulations, including overtime classifications, paid leave for federal contractors and the joint employment doctrine. We also will assess the impact of the most significant Supreme Court and other appellate court decisions, including the recent Seventh Circuit decision that Title VII prohibits sexual orientation discrimination.
  • OSHA and the Trump Administration: What does uncertainty in the federal government under the Trump administration mean for the agencies that regulate your business? This presentation will highlight the changes to OSHA and the agency’s priority enforcement activities. 
  • Why Do Your Lawyers Say the Things They Say? This session will highlight some of the common questions we are asked and the reasons for our responses. The focus will be on providing practical advice and the background that HR professionals and in-house counsel need in addressing management’s questions and concerns. 
  • Multiple Challenges Facing Multistate Employers: As regulation of labor and employment matters at the federal level becomes more uncertain, state and local jurisdictions continue to pick up the slack. We will discuss how local innovation can challenge multistate employers and offer some best practices for overcoming those challenges. We will address the issues where state and local jurisdictions are beginning to diverge the most, such as hiring practices, minimum wage laws, arbitration and noncompete agreements, and family and medical leave entitlements.
