Ugly Isn’t a Protected Category

March 12 | 1:30-2:45 p.m.
How do you best reinforce your company’s brand and image without running afoul of discrimination laws? Carolyn Richmond and AJ Kamra will show you how to hire and retain employees that match a desired standard, while still complying with the law. You’ll explore recent cases that redefined the very definition of a “protected category,” and how you can find the right balance between the image you strive for and compliance.

Wage and Hour and the DOL

March 12 | 3:15-4:30 p.m.
Fifteen years ago, FLSA claims were a minor annoyance, now they are major company lawsuits. This session will cover every aspect of FLSA claims, from tipping to overtime calculations. Using mock exercises as well as real-life examples, this session will show you how to ensure compliance on the often conflicting requirements at the federal and state levels.

Alka Bahal will also speak at two programs.

ICE Heats Up: Audits, I-9 Forms and E-Verify

March 11 | 1:30-2:45 p.m.
Immigration is a hot topic as states continue to pass immigration laws requiring the use of E-verify and the U.S. Immigration and Customs enforcement (ICE) is keeping pressure on hospitality employers to ensure that workers are legally authorized to work in the U.S. This course will focus on what you need to know to comply with current immigration laws, including how to prepare for and survive an ICE 1-9 audit.

Legal Think Tank

March 11 | 3:30-4:45 p.m.
Sometimes knowing the legal answer to your questions doesn’t resolve the problem. In this interactive breakout you set the agenda! This fun and fast-paced session is guaranteed to help you walk away with several new ideas for solving a pressing labor or employment law issue.

Nancy Yaffe will serve as a panelist during the 4th Annual Cornell University Executive Summit.
