Non-Discrimination in the workplace has been a major goal of companies nationwide. However, issues regarding employment discrimination, harassment and retaliation continue to arise and demand attention from company management and human resources, as well as government agencies and the courts. Federal, state and local equal employment opportunity laws continue to change, creating additional challenges for employers. Everything from whistleblower protections by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to the scope of the National Labor Relations Act continue to expand for all private employers. The laws are not always clear, and often the laws of the various government agencies conflict. These and other major significant issues covering the latest developments in employment discrimination and harassment law will be discussed by our panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled in this two-hour live Webcast.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
· Employment Discrimination and Harassment Litigation – An Update
· Developments at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
· Workplace Harassment – Policies, Common Mistakes and Best Practices
· Retaliation and Whistleblowing Claims
· Settlement of Employment Discrimination Claims
· e-Workplace: Potential Risks and Pitfalls
· FMLA, NLRA & ADA Updates
