Important HR Law Issues: Be Prepared for 2020

With new state laws on the horizon and multiple significant employment issues to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court and other federal courts, 2020 is going to be a game-changer for HR. For instance, medical marijuana laws are being interpreted differently by recent court cases, and HR needs to be prepared for what this means in 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? The final FLSA OT Rule became effective January 1, 2020, so what does this change how you handle your current exempt employees who are below the salary-level threshold? Will the Supreme Court decide that 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 in the workplace?

Join us for this timely webinar presented by attorney and HR employment law expert, Melissa Fleischer, as she helps you prepare for these changes and ensure your organization is protected from potential liability.
