Join us this year for the BHRA Annual Forum held at the Regional Learning Alliance in Cranberry Township. We are excited to welcome attorneys from Jackson Lewis to present the latest trends in employment law across the below topics. Our speakers are experts in their field and bring years of knowledge to this day of education and networking!

Please see the attached flyer for full details about the event, schedule, and how to become a vendor if interested. We look forward to seeing you there! 

  • Labor Issues in the non-Labor environment
    • As private-sector union membership continues to plummet, the National Labor Relations Board is increasingly targeting nonunionized employers. Discussion will include common traps for the unwary, including employees’ rights to engage in protected concerted activity (regardless of their union affiliation), limits on employer work rules, and the boundaries of free-speech rights in responding to organizing efforts. Additionally, the current state of union organizing across new industries and sectors.  

  • Workplace Investigations 101
    • The processes and procedures for addressing employee complaints is critical. This presentation will include a  walk through of best practices for handling a harassment/discrimination complaint from an employee, including what the investigation should include; important documentation and communication tips, as well as recognizing when a complaint has been made.  

  • The Bermuda Triangle of Leave Laws: FMLA, ADA, and Workers' Compensation
    • What is a reasonable accommodation? What rights does not an employer have to terminate an employee who has no definite return-to-work date? Do we have to leave the position open when an employee is out on leave? These are all common questions that employers ask when handling leave under the FMLA, ADA, and Workers’ Compensation. This presentation will cover leave under each law, and assess an employer’s obligations to comply with the leave requirements and the interactive process requirements.

  • Wage and Hour: Refresher Course on the hot button issues under the FLSA and Pennsylvania wage laws
    • The DOL finally issued a new proposed rule updating the salary level for the white collar exemptions. This presentation will talk through what this means for employers, how it interplays with Pennsylvania wage laws, and other considerations when evaluating your workforce. During this presentation, prepare to have answers to common questions about overtime, exempt-status, the importance of job descriptions, and what deductions can be made from an employee’s pay. No need to bring your calculator – we promise that any math will be easy and fun!
