Labor & Employment 

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


  • Legal Update. We will review the status of proposed changes to federal and state labor and employment laws, rules and regulations, including overtime classifications, paid leave for federal contractors and the joint employment doctrine. We also will assess the impact of recent federal and state court decisions and analyze possible changes under the Trump administration.
  • Drugs and Alcohol: What Is Your Tolerance? Discussion will include drug and alcohol testing policies in the workplace, how to navigate work-related functions that involve alcohol, and workplace issues that have arisen with the enactment of state and local laws permitting the use of medical and recreational marijuana.
  • Practical Tips for Addressing Suspected FMLA and ADA Abuse. We will analyze options for addressing suspected misuse of FMLA leave and the ADA accommodation process, from both a practical and legal standpoint.
  • 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 best practices for overcoming those challenges in hiring practices, minimum wage laws, arbitration and noncompete agreements, and family and medical leave entitlements.
