New Labor Laws & Rulings Affecting Workforce: "What Every Employer Should Know"


Craig A. Cowart, Partner, Fisher & Phillips, LLP
Arnold Perl, Partner, Glanker Brown Law Firm

Labor laws in our country are in constant evolution. From changes with the National Labor Relations Board to the Fair Labor Standards Act, labor laws are constantly emerging. This workshop will address current labor laws related to unions, the U.S. Department of Labor, EEOC and healthcare that will impact your workplace. Key labor experts will serve as part of an engaging panel that will provide vital information to ensure your organization is well-informed of substantial labor trends.

The following topics will be addressed:

1. How to remain a union free environment

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a proposed rule on February 6, 2014 that would significantly change the NLRB’s election rules and procedures for union recognition. Also in September 2013 the American Federation of Labor- Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) announced a new organizing strategy for the South.  There have been efforts to organize companies in Memphis. Companies will learn what their legal rights are and how to remain union free in a “Right to Work” state.

2. Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

Wage & Hour Law 2014: Employee Classification on New Overtime Rules - Small and large business are being forced to pay out large sums of money for misclassifying employees and failing to pay overtime. In 2014 President Obama recently declared that the FLSA was “outdated" and ordered the Department of Labor (DOL) to rewrite the rules. Attending this workshop will offer you current information on how to classify your employees (exempt or nonexempt) and who is eligible for overtime. It will also provide the current updates.
