Employment law issues affect virtually every business, governmental entity, and not-for-profit organizations. This update examines employer liability for discrimination of all types, including disability discrimination and violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); wage and hour laws; the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA); Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and expensive lessons learned for simple Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) violations. During the webcast, we will also discuss noncompete covenants and pitfalls for employers approached by employees of competitors; and how nondisclosure and nonsolicitation agreements can provide many of the protections - without some of the downsides - of noncompetes. Cases illustrating common ways employers violate the various employment laws are highlighted. This webcast includes a 50-state survey of noncompete agreements, which addresses the various state's position on enforceability, restrictions and scope, standards, consideration and judicial revisions of noncompetes.
