Nexsen Pruet is providing employment law briefings and breakfasts in several Carolinas communities this month.
The program, Looking Back and Looking Forward: Employment Law Compliance and Legal Obligations for 2023, will “revisit important employment law developments in the last year and discuss trends in employment law facing HR professionals in 2023.”
“This briefing will include discussions on significant changes in state and federal law in the Carolinas, whether the mid-term elections will materially affect the workforce, statutory or other employment law initiatives that are expected to be on the table for 2023, and current legal trends that will impact employers and HR professionals in North and South Carolina,” the lawyers say in their program announcement
Potential topics include.
- Economic uncertainty and its impact on the workforce, including layoffs, RIFs, and the WARN Act
- Anticipated legislative initiatives in other states and their potential impact on the Carolinas, including cannabis and abortion protections
- Potential Supreme Court decisions that could change the workplace landscape
- Post-pandemic issues that affect employers, including remote, hybrid and flexible work arrangements, and the lingering impact of pandemic-related illnesses
- DOL initiatives and trends, including the anticipated change to the salary threshold for exempt workers, pay transparency laws, and independent contractor rules
- EEOC enforcement priorities
The gatherings between Jan. 19 and Jan 31 include a breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. followed by a one hour briefing.
Details on the different communities are below.
