    It is again time for FVSHRM's annual Labor and Employment Law up date with Attorney Bob Simandl. The past year has brought many changes in the law, its interpretation and application. But we have seen 5 areas where the most significant risk is created for Wisconsin and multi-state employers. These risk areas have created exposure for employers in the millions and an action plan is required to contain the ever growing liability. Bob will focus on these legal exposure areas and share best practices with attendees in preserving employee rights and sheltering the Company of undesirable risks.


    Bob and his team will address:

    • FMLA compliance and medical leave management – addressing the confusion associated with granting and controlling the taking of FMLA leave, coordination with other laws and the rights of employers in the management (including discipline) of the workplace in an environment where FMLA use exists. 
    • Wage and hour vulnerability and the “Class Action Lawsuit Pandemic” affecting employers throughout the country – what are the key “consideration points” in assessing vulnerability, compensation strategies with the recurring greatest risk, correcting compliance difficulties and assessing an overall prevention strategy.
    • Employee Handbook evaluation format and “must have” provisions.  This analysis will include the consideration of fatal provisions from an NLRA/NLRB perspective, wage and hour and discrimination basis.
    • Hiring – recruitment and evaluation – maintaining cultural expectations but obtaining the best talent in an ever-changing hiring pool environment – X, Y, Z, Boomer and what else.  Hear from other human resource professionals in a conversation moderated by Bob and learn what they are looking at to solicit the best talent.
    • What is on the table for the future – pay transparency, paid sick leave/paid leave, testing for Marijuana, the scope of accommodation (its not just disability any longer), Union organizing and employee section 7 rights, dress codes/dress expectations. 
    If you have specific questions or topics to be addressed, please contact Bob Simandl at rsimandl@vonbriesen.com 

    or call him directly at 414-315-4649.
