Please join us for a complimentary breakfast briefing featuring updates from attorneys in Holland & Knight's Labor, Employment and Benefits Group.
This interactive seminar will focus on important state and federal employment law issues involving a wide range of industries.
Claudia Hinsch will focus on the employer shared responsibility rules under the ACA (play or pay) and what employers need to understand about these rules. Specifically, we will discuss how the penalties work, which employers are potentially subject to the penalty and which employees are affected by these rules. In addition, the presentation will discuss other employer reporting obligations and fees.
Phil Schreiber will focus on three important aspects of the FLSA. First, we will address the concept of joint employer status under the FLSA; that is, one entity can be held liable for FLSA violations for employees that it does not directly employ. This is of particular concern in a parent-subsidiary setting or private equity setting. Next, we will discuss when a successor entity can be held liable for the predecessor's wage and hour violations. We will close our FLSA presentation with thoughts about the impending changes to the FLSA white-collar exemptions.
There have been many employment law developments at the state and federal level over the past year. This presentation will summarize developments in four critical areas: (1) employers’ use of social media in making personnel decisions; (2) enforceability of restrictive covenant agreements; (3) heightened Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) scrutiny of criminal background checks and employee separation agreements; and (4) the recent executive orders affecting government contractors. For each of these topics, Kara Ariail will also discuss practical steps that human resources personnel and other company decision makers can implement to ensure compliance and minimize risk.
