Over the past few years, the ADA and the FMLA have been amended, enforcement activity across all employment law areas has increased, health care has been overhauled, COBRA subsidies introduced, and court decisions continue to impact employers in a variety of ways. Changes in the employment law arena are occurring at a dizzying pace!
To help you wade though the chaos, this presentation provides an overview of the most critical court decisions and legislative changes in federal and Massachusetts labor and employment law during the past year. The presentation also includes highlights of major developments nationwide, to assist multi-state employers in staying current with all applicable laws.
In addition to offering this seminar at the Firm’s annual Fall seminar, we are available to present this program at chambers of commerce, professional consortiums or a client’s workplace, at any time during the year.
All webinars are held at Eastern Standard Time (EST)
