We will also be offering an education seminar, "Employment Law for Entrepreneurs and Managers" presented by David Pogrund, Esq.  David is an attorney with Stone, Pogrund & Korey and teaches this course at the University of Chicago's Booth School of BUsiness.  This seminar will explore real-life cases of employment law, some of which are pulled straight from the headlines, such as the Fox News and CNN sexual harassment, race, gender and age discrimination cases, the Uber cases (where drivers nationwide have attempted to be reclassified as employees instead of as independent contractors), the Hooter’s case (sex discrimination case filed by men for gender discrimination), Abercrombie & Fitch case (where a woman claimed religious discrimination due to the company’s prohibition of head coverings forbidding her hijab), the new overtime laws and regulations, Ban the Box Laws (dealing with background checks of protected employees), Sarbanes-Oxley (whistleblower cases), overtime issues, and the new EEOC regulations on employer wellness programs.  

This seminar will explore legal and ethical employment issues, including: To what extent is employee privacy protected? When does differential action based on gender, religion, race, national origin, citizenship, sexual orientation, disability, obesity, genetic information, or age constitute discrimination?In states where marijuana is legal how does this impact a company’s drug testing and drug free rules?Are workers to be classified as employees or independent contractors? When does overtime apply (exempt vs. non-exempt employee)? Under what circumstances are employees entitled to leaves of absence for FMLA, disabilities, workers compensation, and military service? Must maternity and paternity leave be an equal amount of time? 

It will also cover the following areas:

  1. How to recognize and identify the various discrimination/harassment theories and issues in the workplace;
  2. Once identified, how must the company respond to any given discrimination/harassment situation to avoid liability/retaliation issues;
  3. When and how to conduct a workplace investigation into any alleged discrimination/harassment/retaliation claims; and
  4. Different action plans and discipline to follow an investigation with a variety of different outcomes.

 

This seminar is vibrant,  engaging, practical and timely.
