This session will benefit almost everyone at all levels within an organization. In particular, managers at all levels, HR professionals, benefit administrators, senior managers, physicians, nurses, nurse educators and others interested in current workplace trends.

The following program content was provided by the speaker.


With the #MeToo movement, the growing emphasis on paid leave, the changing landscape on medical and recreational marijuana, the “Ban the Box” laws, and so much more, HR managers have a full plate. Employment law is so nuanced, and sometimes complex, that even the most well-intentioned employer can unwittingly slip up. Those slip-ups can be very costly. This does not have to be the case!

This webinar identifies and discusses employment law issues that will pose the biggest challenges in the coming year and provides some tips on how to address them.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • describe what employers need to do to have a safe workplace
  • discuss the rights of LGBT employees under the Title VII federal law
  • identify employer safety obligations with regard to the opioid crisis and legalization of medical marijuana
  • list any changes in overtime exemptions
  • define who is or is not a joint employer
