What’s New, and What to do About It (Practical Advice for Michigan Employers)

presented byClaudia D. Orr, Attorney, Plunkett Cooney 


DESCRIPTION:

Recently, there have been a slew of changes affecting employers including binding court decisions affecting arbitration and severance agreements, stunning reversals in positions by the NLRB, action by the state concerning the hiring of criminals, recent sales commissions case, and the likelihood of legalized marijuana.  So, what can, and should, an employer do? An experienced employment attorney will discuss the changes and options that should be considered by employers.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Participants will learn the following:

  • The pros and cons of arbitration agreements under recent 6th Circuit case, should you use them and, if so, when and how;
  • Severance agreements and the tender back rule, are they still useful and, if so, when and how you should use them;
  • The state’s position on “the box”, when can and should you seek criminal background information;   
  • Stunning reversals by the NLRB concerning “concerted activity” and “joint employers”;
  • Commissions vs Bonuses, the pros and cons of both and which should be offered by your company; and
  • Recreational marijuana and how this likely change in state law should affect your drug testing policy.
