Work Right Labor & Employment Law Seminar
Join Gibson and Barnes & Thornburg for a Work Right Labor & Employment Law Seminar.
How to Stay Cool as the DOL Turns Up the Heat
Michael Palmer, Barnes & Thornburg
The U.S. Department of Labor is turning up the heat on employers—with its recently proposed guidelines that will qualify currently exempt workers for overtime. The DOL also issued an interpretation that most workers qualify as “employees” – not “independent contractors” under the law. We’ll talk about the FLSA developments and steps to take to manage the increasing wage and hour risks.
Beyond Open Enrollment: Are Your Health & Wellness Programs Up to Date?
Jan Phifer, Gibson and Janilyn Daub, Barnes & Thornburg
The Affordable Care Act continues to be a moving target as new phases of the law are implemented and new guidance is issued. In the meantime, same-sex marriage laws are causing many companies to rethink benefit offerings. And while wellness programs continue to be popular among employers, the EEOC continues to resist certain aspects of these programs and has issued recent guidance.
Sex in the Workplace
Jeanine Gozdecki, Barnes & Thornburg
The term “Battle of the Sexes” has a whole new meaning in today’s workplace. From transgender bathrooms, to domestic violence, to accommodating pregnant employees, we’ll talk about the wide-ranging (and fast-moving) legal developments based on sex. Even sexual harassment has a new twist.

Gerald Lutkus, Barnes & Thornburg
