The Sixth Sense – Six Common Scenarios and How to Analyze Them Without Calling a Lawyer

Presented by: Brian Lerner


The movie “The Sixth Sense” had a plot twist in the end.  While surprise endings help make for a good movie, HR professionals need not be surprised by the outcomes of real-life employee situations.  Brian Lerner will provide you with the tools needed to analyze six of the more common employment scenarios outside lawyers are asked to address when contacted by HR professionals.  Scenarios will cover various topics including FMLA, disciplinary actions, performance management, wage issues, and terminations. 


New Overtime Rules Mean HR Professionals Will Be Working Overtime

Presented by: Brett Schneider


The Department of Labor’s proposed overtime rules are likely to be released in late 2016 and become effective in late 2016 or early 2017.  The proposed rules are anticipated to make it more difficult to classify employees as exempt from the minimum wage and overtime provisions contained in the Fair Labor Standards Act.  Join Brett Schneider as he discusses the proposed rules changes and provides guidance on how to prepare for the implementation of these changes in a manner that will minimize the impact on the employer’s operations and overtime budget.


Internal Investigations: Best Practices Versus Pitfalls

Presented by: Jason Berkowitz


Conducting prompt and effective internal investigations help businesses make informed employment decisions and may stave off litigation, but failure to do so can have significant adverse consequences.  In this session, Jason Berkowitz will discuss best practices for internal investigations and avoiding common employer mistakes.  Jason will also discuss how an effective investigation may keep the EEOC from knocking on your door and if not, tips for responding to the charge of discrimination.
