Join the Fisher Phillips Fort Lauderdale attorneys as they explore new developments and regulations impacting employers in 2017.
A day of practical solutions to workplace problems for anyone who manages employees or makes decisions impacting the workplace.
- Legislative Update: Employers are faced with a constant bombardment of new laws and case law developments. This briefing will focus on what employers need to know to keep pace with these changes.
- Privacy In The Workplace: Whose Business Is It Anyway?: Advancements in technology, social media usage, and evolving privacy laws make finding the right balance between employee privacy and management’s need to know a challenge for employers. Where are the boundaries between protecting the company’s business interests and ensuring employee productivity, and invading employee privacy? This session will examine these concerns, the use of new monitoring technology, and best workplace practices.
- Drug and Alcohol Programs: What’s Legal, What’s Not, What’s Hot?: With medical marijuana now legal in Florida, it is time to ensure that your company’s drug and alcohol program is comprehensive enough to capture the various behaviors, has a legal testing procedure, and that you understand the nuances of when you can discipline and terminate someone.
- Navigating through the Devil’s Triangle: ADA, FMLA & Workers’ Compensation: Dealing with these three laws presents challenges for employers. Through an interactive case study, learn how to spot tricky leave issues; what to do, and what to avoid when evaluating a leave request; and learn concrete tips that you can use to avoid a litigation disaster down the road.
- Playing with Fire: How to Turn Down the Heat on Harassment Claims: Harassment claims are on the rise and are being sparked in new and surprising ways, such as our politically charged climate. This presentation will examine these developments, the current legal landscape, and best workplace practices.
- Roundtable Ignite: In these three 20-minute roundtable sessions, Fisher & Phillips attorneys will facilitate an interactive group discussion tackling some of the trickiest labor and employment issues confronting employers today.
