2018 Employment Law Review of Recent Federal Court Cases Impacting Your Organization


2018 will be an important year for employers.  There are many cases that are pending before courts and federal agencies such as the EEOC and the Department of Labor dealing with employment law issues that are top priority for employers such as wage and hour issues among many others.  One of the many hot issues that the Department of Labor has recently focused on involves unpaid interns and whether employers who employ such interns are violating the Fair Labor Standards Act.  There are currently two major cases that were appealed to the Second Circuit pending against both the Hearst Corporation as well as the Fox Entertainment Group involving unpaid interns that employers need to be aware of.  There are also issues pending regarding whether mortgage loan officers are exempt or non-exempt based upon the Department of Labor’s shifting position on this issue.

In addition to cases to be aware of in 2018, this HR webinar will also discuss major court and federal agency decisions that may impact how employers operate in 2016.  For instance, the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Integrity Staffing Solutions, Inc. vs. Buskin which the Supreme Court held that time that employees spent waiting to proceed through security checkpoints was not compensable time under the FLSA.  Also, this conference will focus on the FMLA case in which the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and the recent revised FMLA regulations defining marriage between same sex spouses for purposes of the FMLA as being based on the state where the marriage was entered into.

Other interesting federal circuit court decisions will be explored as well such as the recent Sixth Circuit decision in EEOC v. Ford Motor Company.  In this case, a female employee at the Ford Motor Company with irritable bowel syndrome requested to work remotely as a reasonable accommodation under the ADA.  The court in this case set forth the 21st century changes to the workplace which now make it much harder for an employer to claim that it would be an undue burden to allow employees to work remotely.  The case also focuses on what employers need to do if they plan on claiming that being physically present in the office is an essential function of an employee’s job.

Join us for this informative HR Webinar discussing the impact of recent federal cases on the workplace and how employers need to prepare for the changes that these decisions may bring.  The following is just some of the information you will receive during this conference including:

    •  In-depth discussion of the cases decided by the 2nd Circuit regarding whether Fox Entertainment Group and the Hearst Corporation violated the FLSA by employing and failing to pay overtime to its unpaid interns
  • Discussion of working remotely as a “reasonable accommodation” under the ADA in light of the Sixth Circuit’s recent decision in EEOC v. Ford Motor Company
  •  Overview of the FMLA in light of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down DOMA and the new place of marriage focus for same-sex spouses
  •  Compensable Time issues under the FLSA and why the Supreme Court held that time spent waiting to go through security checkpoints was not compensable time under the FLSA
  •  The Pregnancy Discrimination Act casePeggy Young v. United Parcel Service Inc., in which Ms. Young has sought to renew her bid to renew her claims against UPS alleging violation of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and what this means for employers regarding providing reasonable accommodations for pregnancy
  •  Religious discrimination and an employer’s obligation to accommodate based upon the case pending and recently argued before the U.S. Supreme Court against Abercrombie & Fitch for denial of a job to a muslim wearing a head scarf at the job interview
  • Proposed revisions to the FLSA and how employers may soon have to pay significantly more in overtime.  Understand what you need to do to prepare.
  • And much much more!!!
