Important HR Employment Law Issues for 2020: It’s Time to Prepare Now

2020 is going to be a major game-changer for HR, with many new state laws on the horizon and multiple significant employment issues to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court and other federal courts around the country. It is important for HR to be aware of impending changes, be prepared for what’s ahead, and have policies and procedures in place to protect your organization.

For instance, medical marijuana laws are being interpreted differently by recent court cases, and HR needs to be prepared for what this means for the workplace. Can you still refuse to hire an applicant that tests positive on a pre-employment drug test? Do you have to provide reasonable accommodations to an applicant that uses medical marijuana for a disability within the meaning of the ADA? When will the final OT rule be effective, and what does it mean for how you handle your current exempt employees who are below the salary-level threshold? What will the Supreme Court decide as to whether Title VII protects employees in the workplace based on their gender identity and sexual orientation? How will this impact your policies and procedures on discrimination and harassment? How should you best prevent harassment in the workplace during the #MeToo movement?

Please join HR employment law expert Melissa Fleischer, Esq. as she helps prepare you for these changes and helps you make sure your organization is protected from potential legal liability in the year ahead.
