Event:
Employment Law Refresher - IN PERSON
 
Additional Information:
Today’s employment world and the laws that govern it is very different from what it was only a few years ago.

Everyone is aware of sexual harassment and discrimination laws, but the protections and pitfalls go far beyond these areas that make good newspaper headlines.

Employers in RI have to worry about work-related injuries and disabilities raise concerns under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Federal Family and Medical Leave ACT (FMLA) as well as under state workers’ compensation statutes. Each injury also raises concerns over what to do with employees when they are at a point where they are ready to return to work. They also have to contend with issues as diverse as the new sick leave law, sexual orientation issues, and avoiding retaliation claims from disgruntled employees and correctly applying the FLSA. They have to think about whether they should have an employee handbook, and, if so, what should-and shouldn’t-be included. In addition, employees are becoming more brazen in the types of lawsuits they pursue with seemingly the only limitation on these actions being the creativity of a plaintiff’s attorney. Recent cases involving such claims as "self-defamation", "negligent retention", and "negligent evaluations" are just come of the claims upon which courts have been asked to rule. It is a minefield that needs to be carefully navigated.
