2014 Employment Law & Legislative Conference
 

   1/29/2014
 

As we begin 2014, employers continue to question how Congress and the Obama administration are going to impact their businesses. Whether it’s implementing the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act, compliance issues with completing the Form I-9, tax and benefits reform proposals being considered in Congress behind closed doors, or what the employment verification provisions of immigration reform legislation mean for employers—we’ll have the answers for you. And as President Obama outlined in last night’s State of the Union address, he’s willing—more than ever to effect change via the executive order process rather than wait for Congress to act. 

Learn everything you need to know about how Washington legislation and regulation will affect your organization and your employees by attending SHRM’s highest attendee-satisfaction paid conference—the 2014 SHRM Employment Law & Legislative Conference! The conference, scheduled for March 17-19, will be held at the Renaissance Washington, D.C., Hotel—Downtown, conveniently situated between Capitol Hill, the White House, renowned museums, cultural attractions, and the historic National Mall.

The 2014 conference will help you understand and prepare for what lies ahead for workplace policy, learn how to manage your organization’s risks, and, most importantly, stay compliant with the multitude of laws and regulations churned out by the federal bureaucracy. This year’s conference will address a wide array of topics including how to:

Gain a clear advantage in understanding the confusing and complex world of workplace legislation and pending court decisions.
Learn the latest regulatory and enforcement activities from those who implement federal employment laws.
Spot and address common pitfalls that can put your organization at risk for issues such as I-9s, background checks, health care, and more.
Build your network of peers and resources.
Develop workplace communication that reinforces your organization’s mission and deters misconduct.
Get tools, tips, and resources that minimize your vulnerability to litigation.

And don’t forget on Wednesday, March 19, you and over 200 of your fellow HR practitioners will again have the opportunity to influence the HR public-policy agenda in Congress. Through prearranged meetings, you will meet with your elected officials and/or their staffs and share the HR perspective on these important issues pending on the Hill.
