Gain a thorough understanding of the most important decisions from the highest court in the land. 

Repeated Tuesday at 4:00 p.m.

With each ruling, the Supreme Court of the United States is permanently shaping federal employment law principles. Recent and looming Supreme Court rulings on issues ranging from class-action waivers to fair-share union fees to age discrimination stand to bring significant changes to the workplace. This presentation will examine these and other key employment law decisions from the last few terms—with more than just summaries of the holdings. The facts of each case, the court's rationale, the long-term implications and, most importantly, how the decision will affect the employer community will be thoroughly analyzed in an interesting and entertaining fashion. This presentation will also address how the addition of Justice Brett Kavanaugh will affect the balance of the court. This presentation will:

  • Provide HR professionals with a thorough understanding of the most important labor and employment-related decisions from the highest court in the land—and what they need to do to protect themselves from legal liability.
  • Analyze how the different justices tend to "line up" on key business issues—and what that tells us about the future.
  • Assist HR professionals with the practical applications they need to implement in their workplace policies and procedures.
