What It's About
Employment law changes tend to come in waves, driven by public perceptions of what’s fair for workers. We’re only a quarter through 2019 and employment law is already changing at a rapid pace, with an increasingly widespread commitment to greater pay equity, access to paid leave, and protection from harassment and discrimination. From the Department of Labor’s announcements on FMLA designations and a new salary threshold for overtime to bans of salary history questions and evolving harassment guidance, there is a ton for busy HR teams to stay on top of.
Join Kate Bischoff, Employment Law Attorney and founder of tHRive Law & Consulting, for a conversation about what is happening, what could happen, and how to best prepare for the rest of the year’s changes. She’ll help explain in layman’s terms what employers can expect this year and how to communicate and implement new policy changes at your organization. She’ll also go over some ways to stay up to date on legislation in your state, so your organization can maintain compliance and avoid any run-ins with the long arm of the law.
