Change is in the air as a series of legal developments on the labor and employment front present new challenges for employers. Potter Anderson’s labor and employment team has seen new developments as well. On September 1, we welcomed Lauren E.M. Russell as a partner in our labor and employment group. Lauren represents employers on a broad range of issues relating to compliance with myriad employment laws, and she has substantial experience with high-level and sensitive internal investigations of discrimination and harassment claims. We’re delighted to have Lauren as part of our labor and employment practice.
Join us on October 4 to meet Lauren and to hear from our Potter Anderson lawyers as we engage in a lively and in-depth discussion of important developments that employers, large and small, need to know. We’ll explore:
- Are the Days of Corporate DEI Programs Numbered?
Kathleen Furey McDonough will discuss the recent momentous decisions of the United States Supreme Court regarding consideration of race in the college admissions process and how they may impact corporate DEI efforts.
- Does the National Labor Relations Board Ever Take PTO?
Lauren Russell will discuss recent significant actions by the NLRB that undo several Trump-era policies and potentially impact both unionized and non-unionized employers. Developments encompass the terms of separation agreements, the ability of unions and employees to challenge workplace policies that can be viewed as interfering with employees’ rights to unionize, and the ability of employees to unionize without formal elections.
- Is There More?
Jennifer Gimler Brady will discuss other recent important legal developments and how they may impact employers. These include the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, the legalization of recreational marijuana, efforts to limit non-competition agreements and other restrictive covenants, and the proposal to increase the salary threshold for most white-collar exemptions under the FLSA, which would significantly expand overtime eligibility.
- What Next?
Jennifer Penberthy Buckley will bring out her crystal ball and highlight proposed legislation and other potential developments that should be on every employer’s radar screen.
