Doing business in an increasingly regulated environment means more rules to follow, costlier penalties and lawsuits to avoid, and increased vigilance on the part of employers in the workplace. So if you feel the government is going wild, you’re not alone. At EmployerLINC 2013, McAfee & Taft’s annual labor, employment and employee benefits seminar, presentations include timely updates on state and federal laws and agency activities as well as practical guidance for maintaining legal compliance.
Attorneys Mike Lauderdale and Lauren Hanna provide valuable guidance and insights in their presentation that focuses on the ever-expanding enforcement activities of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Specific topics discussed include eliminating systemic barriers in recruitment and hiring, equal pay laws and the need for pay audits, the EEOC’s crackdown on harassment, coverage of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals under Title VII, and protecting immigrant, migrant and other vulnerable workers.
