Employment Roundtable: Recent Developments in Employment Law

September 13, 2011

Recent developments in employment law:

more traps for the unwary

Over the past two years there have been significant developments in employment law: the use of social media by employees, increased protections for employees with disabilities and changes to (and new) initiatives to enforce wage and hour laws, to name a few.  Employers who do not understand and prepare for these developments when administering their human resources functions and making employment-related decisions will be more vulnerable to claims and potential litigation by employees.

Please join us on Thursday, October 27, 2011, when our employment attorneys will review these developments, and provide practical guidance on how to successfully navigate this changing landscape. This discussion will focus on:

    • Dealing with the use of social media by employees
    • The impact of recent Supreme Court and other court decisions expanding employee protections against discrimination and retaliation
    • Changes to leave and break laws, including
      •  Family and Medical Leave Act
      •  District of Columbia Accrued Sick and Save Leave Act
      •  Maryland Flexible Leave Act
      •  Maryland Healthy Retail Employee Act
    •   Changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act
    •   Developments in wage and hour law
