The Supreme Court and Congress: Impacting Your Daily Human Resources Practices

A number of key judicial decisions and legislation enacted in 2009 significantly impacted the employment law landscape, and currently pending cases and legislation promise additional changes in 2010.  Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court confirmed that to succeed in an age discrimination case, an employee must show that age was the decisive factor in the employer's personnel decision; but pending legislation could overturn this decision.  Meanwhile, Congress passed legislation in 2009 providing that the statute of limitations for bringing a pay discrimination claim restarts with each paycheck. In addition, recent judicial decisions re-examine workplace email privacy rights, and pending legislation would render mandatory arbitration clauses in private employer agreements unenforceable and expand employee rights under the FMLA and FLSA.

In light of these decisions and new legislation, this program will:

  • describe the new standards set by the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress and pending legislation
  • review recent key cases addressing, among other topics, retaliation, harassment and workplace email privacy
  • explore best practices for protecting your company in light of these judicial and legislative changes
