Labor Law changes you NEED to know about that will affect your business.

State and federal employment regulations are undergoing important changes that present compliance challenges. What you DON’T know can hurt your business. Start planning your strategy with the Chamber’s upcoming Ask the Experts workshop, “What’s Your Plan? Labor Law & Proactive Policies for Your Business.” Tap into the expertise of three top-level labor law attorneys with Jackson Lewis PC. These experts will share their deep knowledge and explain issues such as state sexual harassment laws, federal overtime rules, employee scheduling, tip-pooling and more. No matter the size of your business, this workshop is a do-not-miss event. Bring your questions!

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.
