Recent years have brought a steady stream of developments in labor and employment law, and 2023 has been no exception. As we expect regulatory and legislative changes to continue, it is critical for employers and HR professionals to stay informed of the impact these developments will have in the workplace. We invite you to join us for a lively presentation discussing the significant legal developments that employers should consider as we look forward to 2024.

Topics include:

  • The use of artificial intelligence in human resource management.
  • The impact of new state privacy rights acts on employment practices.
  • Recent NLRB developments, including:
    • Restrictions on confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions in severance agreements.
    • New standards for work rules.
    • Updated procedures for union elections.
  • New developments regarding disability and accommodation issues, including:
    • Mental health accommodations.
    • Expanded protections for pregnant and nursing workers under the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) and the Providing Urgent Maternal Protections for Nursing Mothers Act (PUMP Act).
    • Use of marijuana for medical treatment purposes.
