Employers wanting to protect confidential and proprietary information, to secure a release or waiver of claims from a departing employee, or to maintain reputation and image on social networks have faced mounting challenges from federal agencies who are more closely scrutinizing documents, policies and protocols even when unrelated to underlying complaints. This program provides an overview of recent trends in rulemaking and litigation by federal agencies about which all employers should take notice. Even the most carefully drafted policies, handbooks and employment agreements are subject to challenge and employers unaware of the recent developments can find themselves in unwanted, unnecessary litigation. The goal of this program is to provide a working knowledge of what agency investigators are reviewing and how to proactively implement or amend existing policies before they become costly litigation matters. This full day course will explore rulemaking and litigation trends by the NLRB, the EEOC and OSHA which affect all employers regardless of size and/or union affiliation.
This program has been approved for 7 (HR (General)) recertification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute.
