Employment Law Wrap-up: A Turbulent End to 2016 and What to Expect in 2017

Duration: 90 minutes

This webinar, featuring our employment law expert, Anniken Davenport, Esq, will break down everything you need to know in 90 minutes flat. She will discuss what changed this year, what is expected for next year, and what is still up in the air. And most importantly, she’ll help you understand exactly what you need to be watching for, so you can zero-in on the most critical updates as changes continue to unfold.


Moving from one calendar year to another is always a critical time to stay vigilant for employment law changes and developing trends that will affect your workforce in the coming 12 months.

The 2016/2017 transition was already expected to be riddled with HR challenges as a new presidential administration takes power. But the complications have just deepened with many Obama-era workforce changes now in jeopardy.

  • The OT regulations changes (moving full steam ahead just days ago) now seem to be dead in the water.
  • There are promises and threats abound to change ACA regulations that many employers are still struggling to comply with.
  • Changes to immigration regulations could mean major modifications for HR professionals responsible for verifying citizenship status.

But HR professionals have a full workload and don’t have the time and resources to read and analyze every word in every article or post that pops to the surface.

This webinar, featuring our employment law expert, Anniken Davenport, Esq, will break down everything you need to know in 90 minutes flat. She will discuss what changed this year, what is expected for next year, and what is still up in the air. And most importantly, she’ll help you understand exactly what you need to be watching for, so you can zero-in on the most critical updates as changes continue to unfold.
