This session will provide attendees with practical information to guide their organization within legally defined boundaries in day-to-day activities from hiring, to protect employees' concurrent rights, and avoiding even the appearance of any activities that violate these burgeoning rules and regulations. 

In 2023, we saw a flurry of activity from various federal agencies targeting employment practices. As of this writing, we anticipate publication of the FTC's final rule effectively banning non-compete agreements as a key example.  When published, the rule is likely to face legal challenges. The DOJ and FTC continued to push their 'no poach approach.' Federal rules and guidance are also changing related to employers' sharing of wage and benefits information, M & A's, and more. Join this interactive program as we review the latest news, trends, cases, and pitfalls to avoid throughout the employment cycle from recruitment to separation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review applicable laws and recent court decisions impacting related policies and practices.
  • Consider the most recent federal agencies' rules and guidance.
  • Consider the legal question of 'Can we do this' balanced with the subjective, 'Should we do this?'
