Emerging Legal & Compliance Concerns

You’ll benefit from insights from many of the country’s top employment law attorneys as they explain the practical impact emerging legal issues and evolving compliance hurdles will have on your employment policies and practices heading into next year and beyond. AEIS Emerging Legal & Compliance Concerns sessions provide clear insights on how paradigm shifts concerning wage and hour law, ADA accommodations, paid leave, and more. You’ll learn how to identify key legal threats on the compliance horizon, so you can prepare, and minimize legal risks:

  • Administering paid sick leave
  • Harassment and retaliation
  • Accommodations for mental disabilities and improving ADA website accessibility
  • The wacky, wild world of FMLA

Red-Hot Regulatory Updates

The regulatory irons are red hot right now—there’s just no way else to put it! The Red-Hot Regulatory Updates track will bring you up to speed on what to do to ensure that your employment policies and practices don’t run afoul to the latest, and most noteworthy, regulatory, legislative, and court updates. We’ll cover:

  • Wage and hour bombshells

  • Paid sick leave mandate for federal contractors
  • Expanded ‘based on sex’ protection under Title VII

Security and Risk Management

AEIS 2016’s Security and Risk Management track is designed to provide timely, relevant, and practical insights into what HR can do to help manage and reduce legal risks for the organization resulting from technology breaches, privacy concerns, workplace violence, and more. Sessions are devoted to topics such as:

  • Protecting the employment brand
  • COPE v. BYOD
  • Workplace violence
  • Protecting your company’s legal and property interests

Data Analytics and Metrics

  • Legal risks of Big Data
