Please join us for our annual fall seminar on November 2, 2012 at the Hartford Marriott Downtown. This promises to be an interesting and informative program regarding recent developments in labor and employment law. Our half-day seminar will include discussions of the timely topics listed here as well as updates on recent legislation and court decisions affecting employers.

Topics include:

NLRB UPDATE: There is a Reason They Don't Call it the National Management Relations Board!
The NLRB has been active lately, mostly to the detriment of employers, including employers who don't have unions in their workplace. A review of recent decisions and developments will help employers identify the potential problem areas.

THE TRIPLE THREAT: A Study of Complex Cases Under the ADA, FMLA and Workers' Compensation Act
The interaction between these laws is often perplexing for employers, particularly where employees are requesting leave for medical issues.  An advanced analysis of real-life scenarios will assist employers in navigating these complex laws.

WHAT EXACTLY IS A “HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT”?
The term “hostile work environment” is an overused expression by employees, much to the frustration of employers.  This session will review the legal standards involved and will provide guidance on effectively supervising workplace bullies and those who claim a hostile work environment.

THE TRUTH IS ONLY WHAT YOU CAN DOCUMENT: Employee Investigations and Documentation Issues
In most employment cases, the employer’s investigation and documentation are intensely scrutinized.  Best practices will be covered in order to assist employers in these important areas.
