Manager 3.0: Grooming Tomorrow's Millennial Leaders Today

As millennials become managers, how are they rewriting the rules and changing the face of leadership?

Guests will also learn how to coach millennials to become strong and selfless managers and what can be done to help your future leaders succeed.

What’s New in Illinois

Todd Steenson will discuss important new laws and legal developments in Illinois, including the new concealed carry and medical marijuana laws and their impact on employment matters, and the application of FMLA leave to same-sex domestic partners.

Bring Your Own Device to Work

There is a growing trend of employees using their personal devices in the workplace with employer approval and encouragement. With this trend comes the need to recognize the challenges posed to employers when employees bring their own devices to work. Phil Schreiber will provide some straightforward policies, basic precautions and proactive steps employers should use to navigate these challenges.

What is a Reasonable Accommodation in 2013 and Beyond

Nearly five years have passed since the ADAAA was enacted. How much has it changed the workplace and your interactions with employees? Rob Vyverberg and Jennifer Froehlich will discuss recent cases that have addressed the reasonable accommodation analysis, along with the current enforcement position of the EEOC and the Illinois Department of Human Rights.

NLRB Update

The NLRB continues to grapple with the legality of social media policies, confidentiality rules and other common workplace policies. At the same time, employers are struggling to understand how far they can go to limit what employees can say online and otherwise protect their business assets and relationships. Ken Jenero will review the most recent rulings in this rapidly developing area of the law, which affects all employers regardless of union affiliation.
