2018 Human Resources and Employment Law Symposium
Your Workplace Climate Has Changed What Employers Must Do Now
Please join us for the 2018 Human Resources and Employment Law Symposium on November 2, 2018 to be held at Club 101, 101 Park Avenue, New York City.
Symposium Information and Agenda
We are experiencing dramatic and unprecedented changes in our government and our society as a whole. These legal and cultural shifts have effectively transformed the workplace; creating new and daunting HR challenges associated with legal compliance as well as effective workforce management.
Faced with such broad changes, CEOs, operations managers, HR managers, front-line supervisors, etc., have a steep learning curve ahead of them. And, there’s little time to get up to speed on these issues.
Plan on attending the Delacroix Consulting Group 2018 Human Resources and Employment Law Symposium at Club 101, 101 Park Avenue, New York City on November 2, 2018, to learn how to survive and even thrive in this new era. In conjunction with the Printing Industries Alliance and Ferrara Fiorenza PC, this symposium has been hailed by participants as being THE preeminent HR and employment law education conference, bar none.
Unlike other conferences, this one is designed to provide you with a real, no nonsense opportunity to work with experienced employment law attorneys as well as other experts to understand the changes and how best to adjust your approach to the most difficult HR issues facing your organization today.
8:00AM—Registration and Continental Breakfast
8:30AM—Essential Employment Law Updates
Nicholas J. Fiorenza, Esq., Ferrara Fiorenza PC
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with trying to keep up with all the new and changing employment laws. You will learn practical, easy-to-follow ways to comply with recent changes in employment law, as well as upcoming changes for which you will need to begin preparing. This portion of the Conference will cover such wide-ranging topics as:
- Roll Back of Certain Wage and Hour Regulations – What’s Old is New Again
- Stunning Changes at National Labor Relations Board Affecting All Employers
- Impact of “Weinstein Effect” on Workplace Harassment
- And much more …
11:00AM—Surviving Department of Labor Audits
Michael L. Dodd, Esq., Ferrara Fiorenza PC
During the Obama administration, the U.S. Department of Labor beefed-up its enforcement efforts by adding hundreds of new field investigators. While the new administration has projected budget cutbacks and rule changes, the Department remains very active, targeting employers who: (1) fail to properly pay minimum wage or overtime; (2) misclassify employees as exempt under the FLSA; or (3) misclassify employees as independent contractors. The presenters will take you through detailed case studies of audits they have defended so that you can learn what to do and what not to do when your organizations are being audited.
12 Noon - LUNCH PROVIDED
1:00PM—Comprehensive (and Legal) Strategies to Finally Solve Employee Attendance Problems: FMLA, ADA and Beyond
Michael L. Dodd, Esq., Ferrara Fiorenza PC
Regardless of whether your organization is subject to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), all employers must guard against violating federal and state laws that shield employees from disciplinary action for not coming to work. This portion of the program will be dedicated to helping you develop your organization’s strategies for controlling absenteeism.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Owners, top managers, human resources staff, finance managers and others associated with the development of strategies to manage any organization. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from experts and also network with other managers who face the same challenges on a daily basis.
