Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), Workplace (Technical)
Workplace Application:
Attendees will be provided with a thorough understanding of the most important decisions from the highest court in the land. 

With each ruling, the Supreme Court of the United States is permanently shaping federal employment law principles. Recent and looming Supreme Court rulings on issues ranging from arbitration and vaccine mandates to employment discrimination based on military service and affirmative action stand to bring significant changes to the workplace. This presentation will examine these and other key employment law decisions from the last few terms with more than just a summary of the holding. The facts of each case, the Court's rationale, the long-run implications and, most important, how the decision will affect the employer community will be analyzed in an interesting and entertaining fashion. This presentation will also discuss Justice Stephen Breyer's decision to retire and how his retirement will likely affect the balance of the Court.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding of the most important labor and employment-related decisions from the highest court in the land and what they need to do to protect themselves from legal liability.
  • Analyze how the different justices tend to "line up" on key issues and what that tells us about the future.
  • Assist HR professionals with the practical applications they need to implement in their workplace policies and procedures.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
