DOL Developments

Mark Kittaka, Barnes & Thornburg

Employee Terminations: Best Practices, Legal Requirements, and Separation Agreements

Jason Clagg, Barnes & Thornburg

Jason will address how best to conduct and document a termination, the legal requirements surrounding the departure (e.g., When is the last pay check due? Do I have to pay for the entire week? Am I obligated to provide a reason for the termination?), and the tricks and traps hidden in a separation agreement.

Changes in the #MeToo Era

Mark Scudder, Barnes & Thornburg

The legal landscape surrounding claims of discrimination and harassment have changed significantly since the “#metoo” movement went viral in the fall of 2017. Mark will discuss the practical effects of the #metoo movement, including a discussion of the legislative changes already made, additional legislative proposals pending in Congress, and changes in employee (and public) expectations.

Panel Discussion

Kathleen Anderson, Barnes & Thornburg

As companies face increasing competitive pressures to recruit and retain talented and dedicated workers, they must also manage employee medical- and drug-related issues, including attendance; leaves of absences; requests for accommodation; and fitness for duty. Kathleen will lead a lively discussion of legal and practical challenges, best practices, and potential process improvement, drawing out the collective experience of attendees.
