Archer Attorneys to Present at CCSNJ’s “HR Boot Camp” Seminar

Archer will sponsor the upcoming Chamber of Commerce of Southern New Jersey seminar, “HR Boot Camp” on March 1, 2016 from 8:00am – 12:00pm. Topics will include the following:

Employee Handbooks in 2016 – What’s the Latest?
Peter L. Frattarelli, Esq.Archer P.C. 
Employee handbooks are the starting point for all employer policies, but the legal requirements continue to evolve. This presentation will summarize the basic rules for all employee handbooks. Peter will also explain the changing legal landscape for confidentiality, social media and harassment policies in handbooks, based on recent Court and National Labor Relations Board decisions.

Accommodating Employees With Disabilities – A Primer
Douglas Diaz, Esq.Archer P.C.
Even the most seasoned employers struggle regularly with accommodations needed for employees with medical issues, including how much time off must be given before termination.  This primer will give an overview of when (and what) medical accommodations are required, including how disability accommodations must be considered even after FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) time off has ended.

Changing Scope of “White Collar” Overtime Exemptions
Tracy A. Wolak, Esq.Archer P.C.
In June 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor proposed overhauls to the so-called “white collar” overtime regulations which, if adopted, would dramatically increase the number of otherwise-exempt employees entitled to overtime. This presentation will analyze the current exemption regulations, review the proposed changes, and offer guidance for employers on how to prepare for the anticipated revisions.

Employees vs. Independent Contractors – Who’s Who?
David A. Rapuano, Esq.Archer P.C.
Perhaps the hottest legal and enforcement issue facing employers in 2016 is whether persons labeled as “independent contractors” are actually employees, and thus subjecting employers to owing back wages, fines and penalties.  This presentation will highlight the key factors in this growing legal debate, and also provide critical guidance as to how employers can avoid the issue, or lessen the risks.
