    The Annual Legal Overview: Keeping Up With the Times

    The laws, technology and the workforce keep changing. HR professionals are challenged to keep up. Learn about the most recent developments, hot topics, mistakes you can avoid, and what to expect in the coming year.

    • Recent laws and new regulations
    • Supreme Court: Top HR rulings
    • Significant cases on FMLA, discrimination, privacy, personal liability and the "most unusual cases of the year"
    • Coming attractions and trends

    Lessons of the Past Year. Every year key court cases are decided which reveal errors HR & managers could have avoided. 2013 was no different. Some cases involve poor decisions by managers which could also create personal liability, & these risks might have been reduced if the involved supervisors and managers had only conferred with HR before they acted, and for that matter, if HR had, in certain instances, only sought advice before taking action. Some of the important court decisions which may be problematic in the future involve: how position descriptions get you in trouble; Unemployment Compensation changes; new rules on conviction records, ADA records & evaluations.
