Making Complex human resources

Issues as easy as 1-2-3






-Harassment, Discrimination and Just Getting Along


Get schooled on legal requirements for creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workplace, addressing decades-old “Me, too” (or brand new) harassment allegations, ensuring fair, prompt and thorough investigations and setting the bar for workplace behavior.

Presenters:  Rosemary M. Marin and Francisco Ortega




-HIPAA, HITECH, and Release of Records


All businesses must comply with governmental requirements for employee privacy, as well as retention and disclosure of records, or pay a big price.  The Government’s crackdown on the release of protected information is at an all-time high. Thus, knowing the latest on HIPAA, HiTech and the rules for protection and release of information is more important than ever.  Learn developing rules and trends that proactive employers must know.

Presenters:  Andrea Moran and Blake Downey




-Creating and Updating a Clear and Effective EmployeeHandbook   


Employee handbooks set the culture and rules of an organization, so few documents are as important to the workplace.  Effective handbooks must be reviewed regularly to incorporate current law. Learn the latest legal developments with handbooks, including rapid changes with respect to EEO, reasonable accommodations, breastfeeding, leaves of absence, workplace communications, pay, and quickly emerging legal issues.

Presenters:  Jimmy Feuille and Blake Downey




-Handling Complex Wage and Hour Issues


Be equipped to handle the latest  wage and hour challenges, including new pay equity requirements, salary history bans, connectivity and overtime, training and travel pay, misclassification of workers, new joint employer rulemaking, and the status of the DOL’s renewed consideration of an increase in the base salary for exempt employees.

Presenters:  Rosemary Marin and Stephen Venzor




-Workplace Immigration Law in the New Era (for those who thought they already knew everything)             


Get an overview of how our US immigration system really works, learn about workplace visas, especially the elusive H-1B visa and other major changes impacting the way visas are issued, get updates on I-9 compliance, proposed mandatory E-Verify, record setting enforcement mandate, and avoid bet-the-company level fines.

Presenters:  Susanna Visconti and Andrea Moran




-Maneuvering Through Workplace Leave Laws, Including Workers’ Comp., FMLA, ADA, PDA            


Making workplace leave and accommodations work for everyone is not an easy task, especially when the law keeps changing. Obtain high-level skills for managing this complicated area of law, including opioid and other addictions, mental health issues, workplace injuries, and extended leaves of absence.  Learn by doing and work through real life examples in a fast-paced, fun activity. 

Presenters:  Rosemary M. Marin and Blake Downey
