Program Description

There were a large number of changes in labor and employment law in the U.S. during 2012 and we expect to see at least as much action in 2013.  This webinar will provide an overview of the key legal developments.  We will offer a national perspective with legal experts hailing from every region of the country.  Together, they will offer insight on such topics as: 

  • An update on NLRB developments: a review of the NLRB’s most controversial decisions and what union and non-union employers need to know in 2013
  • A round-up of the most important new federal and state laws affecting employers
  • The latest discrimination decisions and a review of the EEOC’s new enforcement priorities
  • The hottest trends in wrongful termination litigation 
  • Lessons learned from the most recent wage and hour disputes and what to expect in 2013
