Announcing KJK’s next Breakfast Briefing: The Top 5 Issues Confronting Your Business’s HR Practices Today

Top 10 lists are so 2009. KJK’s employment lawyers will bring you the top 5 issues currently facing your business and its HR practices as we move through 2010.

  1. Classifications of Employees: The Department of Labor is ramping up its resources and enforcement measures. Learn why you need to get a handle on who is exempt versus who is not exempt, and the difference between an employee and an independent contractor.

  2. Health Care Reform: Be honest, you haven’t read all 2000+ pages of the landmark health care legislation. We have. Learn about the most important issues that face your business.

  3. Technology: Learn when you can and cannot read employees’ emails, text messages, and other electronic communications, and why even the best drafted policy likely will not grant you access to personal, sensitive information.

  4. Disability Discrimination: The ADA amendments have been in place for a little over a year and the EEOC is about to issue sea-changing regulations. This is not your father’s ADA. Learn what has changed, and what you can do to protect your organization from this new breed of discrimination.

  5. Hiring: If 2008 and 2009 were all about layoffs and downsizing, we are hopeful that 2010 and beyond will be about hiring. Learn how to plan for the economic upswing and proactively protect yourself by implementing key policies and procedures for hiring new employees and rehiring old ones.
