Everything You Need to Know about the Supreme Court Pregnancy Decision, New Local Employment Laws on Wage Theft, Pregnancy, Ban the Box, Marijuana, Social Media, and DC’s Knock-on-Your-Door Program – In 90 Minutes

Between the Supreme Court's recent pregnancy decision in Young v. UPS and a slew of new employment laws in DC, Maryland, and Virginia, local employers have a lot to do: updating HR practices, revising manuals and written policies, training managers and supervisors, and posting and providing new notices to employees. On top of it all, DC employers must prepare for when the Department of Employment Services knocks on their doors pursuant to its recently announced compliance program.

This breakfast program will address:

  • What the Supreme Court’s decision does – and does not – mean for local employers;
  • DC's Wage Theft Prevention Act Amendments, Protecting Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act Amendments, Ban the Box, Prohibition of Pre-Employment Marijuana Testing Emergency Act, and the OWH Zip Code Project (DC's proposed employer door-to-door campaign);
  • Maryland's Parental Leave Act; and
  • Virginia's proposed social media in the workplace legislation.

Please join Venable's Labor and Employment attorneys for this timely and relevant program designed to provide in-house counsel and HR professionals a current legal landscape summary and practical compliance advice. Of course you will also have the opportunity to ask questions!
