The U.S. Supreme Court has issued a number of significant opinions over the past few months that address employment laws and practices, including harassment, retaliation, arbitration, and collective action wage claims. The impact of these decisions will be both immediate and far reaching. I am pleased to be participating in a webinar about these recent decisions and even more pleased to offer readers the opportunity to register for the event for free.
The 90-minute webinar will be held on July 17, 2013, beginning at 3 p.m. Eastern time. Among the cases that will be discussed are:
- Vance v. Ball State University: Are there steps an employer should take to reduce the potential for harassment liability based on “supervisor” actions?
- University of Southwestern Texas Medical Center v. Nassar: Is this the end of retaliation claims as we know them, or a case that only lawyers can love?
- American Express v. Italian Colors Restaurant: Should an employer consider changes to arbitration agreements?
- Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk: A new defense for employers facing a collective-action lawsuit for unpaid wages?
We also will briefly discuss the potential impact of the Fisher v. University of Texas affirmative action decision, the recess appointments of NLRB members, and whether Congress will take steps to undo any of these Supreme Court decisions.
