Created on February 04, 2021





With a brand new administration under President Biden, a new majority on the Supreme Court, and an ongoing pandemic impacting businesses and their employees globally, employment attorneys have a lot to stay on top of in 2021. In this program, Mary Smigielski and Steven Sitley of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP will provide an overview of significant new laws and trends nationally, both at the federal and state level. Some of the topics that will be covered include: 1) changes to the EEOC conciliation process, 2) questions about the status of independent contractors, 3) cannabis use and employment, 4) mandatory sexual harassment trainings, and 5) the use of biometric data from employees. 

In addition, the faculty will discuss the latest on COVID issues in the workplace, including mandatory vaccination requirements, workplace safety for returning employees, and COVID-related leave and accommodations policies. Finally, the program will aid attorneys in navigating continued remote work concerns such as wage and hour issues, expense reimbursement, performance management, cybersecurity, trade secrets or confidential/ proprietary business information, and tax issues with different states. 

This program will benefit any attorneys seeking to gain an understanding of the L&E hot topics in the year ahead. Although the presenters represent an employer-side perspective, the course is appropriate for attorneys in any posture.
