Employment Law Update for Florida Employers

OnDemand Webinar (79 minutes)

With recent changes in the make up of the National Labor Relations Board, the adoption of new regulations governing genetic information and the increasing use of technology in the workplace, the laws regarding organized labor, harassment and social media are increasingly interrelated. The NLRBís recent complaint against an employer who fired an employee for criticizing her boss on Facebook® provides a perfect illustration. Most employers donít realize that the National Labor Relations Act applies to nonunion workplaces and also fail to recognize that their current social media polices may not only violate the NLRA, but may also be inadequate to address harassment, privacy and other workplace issues.

This course will help you with the information you need to be up to speed. Employment suits continue to be a costly form of business expense, and your company cannot afford to make mistakes that could be easily avoided.

This in-depth course will update you on important developments under the National Labor Relations Act, as well as harassment law and the use of social media. We will explain all the best practices that you can implement in order to give maximum protection to your company. Employers that fail to properly address these areas risk federal administrative actions, as well as litigation. From putting appropriate policies in place, to properly enforcing those policies through effective investigation and discipline, we will give you all the insight you will need in order to be a prepared employer. The course is a must for all employers who want to get the most up-to-date information on these subjects.
