HR Changes Ahead: New Administration Issues

Duration: 90 minutes

A new presidential administration always means new rules for employers, but this time HR and legal experts alike agree that these changes will be more widespread than ever before.

Example: the DOL’s budget was cut by more than 20%, causing agencies like OSHA and Wage & Hour to drastically reallocate resources. Does this mean employers can count on less oversight under the new administration?

Not so fast... In fact, it might be quite the opposite. (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

Many states will find ways to fill the gaps in the DOL’s resources. They’ll likely start by boosting revenue-driving activities like cracking down on wage and hour violating employers. Under the prior administration most states would have left that up to the DOL.

One thing is for certain—the new administration will mean a growing emphasis on stringent HR management skills.

Fortunately, our employment law expert, Anniken Davenport, Esq., is prepared to discuss what every HR leader needs to know about finalized, pending and speculated changes so you’ll be prepared to remain federally compliant as this new administration takes form.

The “New Administration Issues” webinar will help HR executives take advantage of employment changes while ensuring that HR departments are fully prepared for various new implementations.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Under Anniken Davenport’s expert guidance, participants will gain fresh insight on:

  • The New DOL – Learn about Alexa Acosta, his past policies with the Department of Justice, and how they will help shape the future of the DOL.
  • The Paid Leave Movement – Will President Trump follow through with his promise for paid maternity leave? If so, who will it cover, how will it be funded, and how can employees potentially abuse the new system? 
  • EEOC Changes – Find out how the EEOC plans to increase GINA enforcement, its position on employer wellness programs, and the huge lawsuit against wellness programs over age discrimination that could change everything.
  • Congressional Decisions – Pending legislation in Congress could very well upend everything from wellness programs to lawsuit reform, and you need to know about it.
  • Supreme Court Rulings – There have been several big decisions on gay marriage and religious dress. Are you following these new rules as legally required?
  • Visa Programs – The Trump Administration’s position on visa programs could make it harder to hire foreign applicants, and changes to the H-B1 (and other visa programs) could affect your company in ways you’d never expect.
  • Spending Cuts – Learn which programs and agencies are being cut, how this can affect an employers’ ability to hire young workers, how this will impact older workers trying to reenter the workplace, and the future of benefits for seniors and the disabled. 
  • Title VII Test Cases – Stay informed on sexual orientation and sexual discrimination in the workplace, and learn of the Supreme Court’s upcoming decisive role.
  • Affordable Care Act (ACA, “Obamacare”) Changes – An in-depth explanation of what this Act means for employers that goes far beyond the employer mandate.
