Dec. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- While there remains some lingering uncertainty, the recent elections did lend some clarity to an evolving employment regulatory landscape.  According to attorney Mark J. Ricciardi, regional managing partner for Fisher & Phillips, Las Vegas, “Now that the dust has settled, we can expect continued Congressional gridlock and a new wave of federal regulations that will have implications for employers.”  

Fisher & Phillips is making available a webinar presentation that will discuss how agencies such as the NLRB, the DOL and the EEOC plan to carry out their agendas through rulemaking and regulations, without so much as a single vote in Congress.  

“We fully expect to see more aggressive tactics from the regulatory agencies including deeper analysis of systemic employee practices. These analyses and closer scrutiny of corporate position statements and supporting documentation can lead to investigators shifting the burden of proof from the charging party to the employer,” Ricciardi said.

During the webinar, Fisher & Phillips attorneys will discuss how these changes will impact a wide spectrum of employment practices ranging from hiring procedures to discharge investigations.  Webinar participants will receive practical pointers on how best to update their policies to effectuate compliance with these new requirements while continuing to manage a quality workforce under challenging economic conditions.

These two separate hour long webinars are free, but registration is required.   Following registration, participants will receive an email confirmation with instructions on how to join the webinar. Participation in each of these webinars has been approved for one hour of HRCI credit.

Tuesday, December 11 – 2:00 p.m. EST / 11:00 a.m. PST  
Tuesday, December 18 – 2:00 p.m. EST / 11:00 a.m. PST
