Virtual: HRG September 2020 Meeting
Rescheduled from 3/26/20
| Employment Law – Miller Johnson Updates
One obvious bit of great news is that the weather in Michigan this summer has been absolutely amazing, perhaps one of the best! Another positive is this annual legal and legislative update from the labor and employment attorneys at Miller Johnson. Who could have known in March when this program was originally scheduled that so many things everywhere would change so dramatically? The world of employment law and the conditions employers are facing through COVID-19 change frequently and therefore require ongoing communication, attention, and flexibility by each of us.
We weighed going line by line through 175 executive orders, but decided we wouldn’t be able to keep your interest for a 32-hour power point presentation. As a result, we will as always cover the legal developments of the past year, and yes, there were many—if you were too distracted to notice them, you’re like most of us. Here are some of the topics:
The legal issues associated with working from home
Reasonable accommodation when employees do not want to work on site or wear a mask for medical reasons
Increased focus from the EEOC on harassment prevention in the #MeToo era and appropriate employer responses, including training and investigations.
Changes to health and welfare plans made by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020
How Michigan’s No-Fault Reform may impact a self-funded group health plan’s coordination of benefit provisions.
Significant new legislation impacting retirement plans, such as the SECURE Act, including the effective dates of certain mandatory changes to retirement plans, and steps that plan sponsors should be taking before the end of the year to implement the new rules related to hardship distributions.
Supreme Court’s ruling on sexual orientation and gender identity
DOL’s white collar exemptions
Several favorable rulings from the NLRB affecting both union and non-union employers
Politics in the workplace
Employer self-destruction by email
This program will fulfill the SHRM HR Workplace Competency within the HR Knowledge Domain.
This program will fulfill the HRCI functional area of Human Resource Development focusing on HR Employment Law and Regulations and Risk Management.
We look forward to your joining us for this educational, information-filled session!
