    Hot Topics: New Developments in Labor and Employment Law - Todd Hanchett:  Explore what is new in the world of employment law.  We will review updates to case law, labor law changes, and employee privacy updates.

    Workplace Investigations - Brenda Baumgart:  Investigations conducted properly will allow employers to make reasoned and appropriate business decisions that resolve the initial dispute and/or provide a solid defense if the matter ultimately ends up in litigation.   This session will provide guidelines for employers to help them conduct thorough, effective and credible investigations.  Topics covered include planning and conducting investigations, documentation, how to build credibility, and practical pointers. 

    Wage & Hour - John Dudrey:  Navigating the maze of wage and hour laws can often leave even the most experienced human resource professionals confused.  We will help guide you through the maze and cover topics including exempt vs. non-exempt employees, FLSA requirements and documentation.

    Family Leave and Leave as a Reasonable Accommodation - Karen O’Connor:  After more than 20 years as law, ADA, FMLA and OFLA basics are familiar to most employers. This session will focus on the inter-relationships between OFLA, FMLA, and ADA; challenges of intermittent, extended and retroactive leaves; the impact the ADAAA has had on leave and job protection as a reasonable accommodation; and updates on OFLA/FMLA regulations and forms.

    Harassment/Discrimination - Melissa Healy/Ed Piper:  Do you want to build and maintain a healthy work environment?  In this session we’ll discuss the basics of what constitutes unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation, and provide attendees with the tools to handle real-life scenarios that arise in almost every workplace.
