Davis & Gilbert Labor & Employment Breakfast Seminar
May 2013

Hostile Work Environment, Health Care Reform, and New Legal Developments Impacting Your Daily HR Practice

In a landmark 2009 decision, a New York court confirmed the strong protections that New York City law gives to employees who bring hostile work environment claims. This seminar will discuss how the courts have continued to shape hostile work environment claims under the New York City law, including best practices for avoiding hostile work environment and discrimination claims, how to conduct effective internal investigations and the increase in same-sex harassment cases.

In addition, this seminar will focus on employer obligations under the Affordable Care Act that go into effect starting in 2014 and related best practices, and also highlight recent city, state and national developments impacting your daily HR practice, such as

  • The expansion of the NYC law to prohibit discrimination against the unemployed, and to provide paid sick leave to employees
  • Recent developments related to FMLA and FLSA
  • Class action waivers in arbitration agreements
  • Enforceability of restrictive covenants
