Nov. 6 Conference to Address Post-Election Labor Law Changes
Two days after next week's election, North Carolina-based employers' association Capital Associated Industries Inc. will host the 2008 Employment Law Conference, a one-day conference on labor law changes that may come about in the new presidential term. The program is aimed at executives, corporate counsel, HR professionals, managers, supervisors, and anyone else who needs to know the latest developments in federal and state employment law and how those changes could affect companies now and in the future.
CAI says participants will learn how to prepare for possible changes in employment law as a result of the 2008 election, including the Family and Medical Leave Act and the possible passage of the Employee Free Choice Act. Sessions also will discuss state and federal laws covering harassment, diversity, hiring, employee attendance, technology and information policies, and the aging workforce.
Attorneys from Constangy, Brooks & Smith, a labor and employment law firm, will also lead a discussion and conduct an interactive pop-quiz testing the legal aptitude of the audience.
The event takes place Nov. 6 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Clarion Hotel, 415 Swing Road, in Greensboro, N.C. For more information and registration, call (336) 668-7746 or visit www.capital.org.
