Event Description


This webinar will provide an overview of issues that HR professionals face with increasing regulations and compliance challenges. The webinar will focus on "hot" topics such as generational diversity, recruitment, engagement and retention. In addition, leave challenges presented by ADA and FMLA will be reviewed. Changes the profession is facing with minimum wage, overtime and classification challenges will also be discussed. 

Why should you attend: Without question, the eruption of new laws and executive orders affecting HR, combined with a well-versed employee base, leads to more challenging compliance and litigation issues in the workplace. These challenges require HR professionals to learn to navigate a mine-field in a way that is unprecedented. This topic will provide an overview of the areas that are likely to require our attention as HR professionals in the coming months. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Our litigious society
  • Knowledge base of employees
  • The "Brain Drain" - who do we manage older workers?
  • Diversity initiatives
  • Recruitment, engagement and retention
  • "The Big Three" of Compliance: ADA, FMLA, FLSA
  • Leave challenges
  • Changes on the horizon with minimum wage, overtime and classification
  • Extension of benefits to same sex spouses
  • Social Media: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Who Will Benefit:

  • HR Managers
  • HR Directors
  • HR Generalists and Specialists
  • Business Owners
