This timely presentation by Jeff Roth and Lisa Overton of F&B Law Firm, P.C., addresses several controversial employment and human resources issues, and will provide attendees with an understanding of related risks, and proposed solutions regarding mitigation and compliance, in the following areas:

  • Employee Non-Competes and Employment Restrictions
  • LGBT Rights and Anti-Discrimination Protections
  • Fair Labor Standards Act Employee Classification Compliance and New Proposed Regulations
  • Social Media Policies / Compliance with NLRA Protected, Concerted Activities Requirements

If, among the myriad of confusing legal requirements in your day-to-day management of human resources at your company, you are wondering:

  • Why the inventions and proprietary information agreement you have been using for years, which contains a non-compete provision, is likely no longer enforceable because it is only signed by the employee;
  • How your business will plan for a potential change in the minimum salary for employees exempt from overtime requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act from the current $23,660 per year to over $50,000 per year, and how to plan to pay overtime when a significant number of exempt categories in your workforce evaporates;
  • How, according to the federal government, your company’s social media policy and guidelines promoting respectful workplace conduct; prohibiting offensive, demeaning, abusive, or inappropriate remarks; and prohibiting release of confidential employee or company information is prohibited by law; and
  • What are the logical extensions of LGBT rights in the workplace after the Supreme Court declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional; and how to deal with your postoperative transgender employee’s request to use the restroom associated with her sex and related complaints from co-employees;

Then, this presentation is for you!
