The 21st century American workplace is undergoing a rapid transformation fueled by technological advancements, dramatic shifts in social and cultural paradigms and increased connectivity. Many current workplace issues are not adequately addressed by historical labor and employment laws. Local, state and federal laws are being enacted or modified to address relevant current issues. It is critical that employment lawyers are monitoring emerging issues and remain current on new laws or modification of existing laws in their jurisdictions of practice.
This course will provide a general overview of each emerging issue, as well as summary of applicable laws, selected legal considerations and a lively discussion of practice-pointers, for litigators and general counsel, designed to optimize the lawyer’s likelihood of obtaining a successful outcome or implementing an appropriate and compliant company policy.
