Labor Law & Proactive Policies for Your Business.” Tap into the expertise of three top-level labor law attorneys with Jackson Lewis PC.

Topics covered include:
- Recent developments in, and upcoming changes to, New York State Law relating to sexual harassment: The budget bill passed in April created significant new obligations for employers, many of which either are in effect now or will go into effect in the near future. For example, employers will soon be required to have a written sexual harassment policy, as well as formal sexual harassment training in place by October 2018.
- Anticipated changes to federal overtime rules: The United States Department of Labor is expected to release new guidance regarding the FLSA’s overtime rules (most notably the salary threshold for exempt employees) in October 2018. Employers in New York need to understand how this anticipated change will impact their operations, including how any such change will coincide with the existing requirements under New York State law.
- Other recent developments in Employment Law: Significant changes have recently been enacted or proposed in other areas of wage and hour law, such as employee scheduling and tip-pooling, which can have a significant impact on businesses of all sizes.
Presented by Jackson Lewis PC Attorneys John Jay Bove, Vincent E. Polsinelli and Christopher J. Stevens.
