HR Legal Update 2014 – What Employers Need to Know (Boston, MA)

HR Legal Update 2014

What Employers Need to Know

  

2014 has seen more rulings, court decisions and challenges to existing laws. Join our HR Division President, Lauren Brenner and Attorney Joseph Laferrera of Gesmer Updegrove LLP for an HR Legal Update to educate yourself on pertinent changes and interpretations in state and federal laws, NLRB decisions and EEOC guidelines, including:

  • President Obama’s last 3 appointments to the NLRB were ruled invalid. What does this mean for recent NLRB decisions including Banner Health System’s ruling which severely hampered an employer’s ability to investigate workplace misconduct?
  • NLRB’s recent rulings:
    • An employer’s policy regarding inappropriate behavior in the workplace violated the employee’s NLRA rights
    • Liking a Facebook page is considered concerted activity
    • Derogatory employee comments on an employer’s Facebook page is considered protected concerted activity
    • EEOC’s new pregnancy discrimination guidelines and ADA Accommodations for pregnant employees.
    • Bullying in the workplace – in the wake of California’s recent bullying in the workplace training requirement, what are the obligations of employers even without a specific workplace bullying law?
    • Next steps in the Affordable Care Act
    • The recent FMLA decision and its impact for employers:
      • What should an employer do if employees state they never received FMLA notice given the Mailbox Rule was dismissed by U.S. Court of Appeals?
      • Expert testimony is not needed to prove an employee was incapacitated?
      • The employee has used their FMLA time, and an employer cannot deny intermittent leave?
      • 21st century documentation challenges:
        • Cloud-based storage
        • E-mails and other electronic documents
        • Proper treatment of archives and back ups

Cute Girl AKA Lovable You
Harvard Film Archive
Fri., Oct. 3, 2014, 9 – 10:30 p.m.



Hou’s light first feature finds him beginning his career as a director by working in the vein of the romantic comedies so prevalent in Taiwanese cinema at the time. The musical stars two singer-actors (Kenny Bee and Feng Fei-fei) playing a pair of star-crossed lovers who meet in the countryside although Feng is already promised to a serious young man studying abroad. The fact that Bee plays a developer whose sentimental education includes learning to love nature looks forward not only to the environmental messages in The Green, Green Grass of Home but, more broadly, to the importance of landscape in Hou’s work.

Sorcerer (William Friedkin in Person)
Harvard Film Archive
Fri., Sep. 26, 2014, 7 – 9 p.m.



Four seedy criminal outcasts risk their lives in pursuit of redemption, both legal and moral, by driving unreliable trucks stocked with nitroglycerine through dangerous landscape to cap an oil well fire in a Central American banana republic. Featuring a trance-like score by Tangerine Dream and a visceral, astonishing performance by Roy Scheider, Friedkin's reinterpretation of the novel on which Clouzot based his 1953 masterpiece is among Friedkin’s most daring works. Three sequences alone—a chaotic car crash in New Jersey, the unloading of charred bodies in a Central American village, and the explosives laden trucks crossing a rickety storm-blown bridge—render Sorcerer a classic and retain their power to make audiences gasp. Released the same year as Star Wars, Friedkin's audacious masterpiece represents the braver road abandoned by the studio system.

Killer Joe (William Friedkin in Person)
Harvard Film Archive
Sat., Sep. 27, 2014, 7 – 8:45 p.m.



William Friedkin's latest film is among his most audacious works, a startling and often hilarious Southern Gothic crime thriller based on an acclaimed play by Tracy Letts, who also wrote the film's screenplay. With its sudden shifts from hillbilly black comedy to savage violence Killer Joe is a wickedly cutting film whose jagged satiric edge and kinetic stylization reveal the octogenarian Friedkin to be one of those rarest of directors whose talent and vision remain undiminished, if not intensified, across the course of a long and storied career.

Dunlop Lecture with Jonathan Rose: The Entwinement of Housing & Wellbeing
Harvard Graduate School of Design, Piper Auditorium
Mon., Sep. 29, 2014, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.



Jonathan F.P. Rose’s business, public policy and not-for-profit work all focus on creating a more environmentally, socially and economically resilient world. In 1989, Mr. Rose founded Jonathan Rose Companies LLC, a multi-disciplinary real estate development, planning, and investment firm which has successfully completed more than $1.5 billion of work. In 2005, the firm launched the nation’s first green transit oriented acquisition and redevelopment fund, followed by green affordable housing and office transformation funds.

The company’s mission is to repair the fabric of communities. The firm draws on its human capital, financial depth and real estate expertise to create highly integrated solutions to real estate challenges. The firm’s work touches many aspects of community health; working with cities and not-for-profits to build not only housing, but also civic, cultural, educational and infrastructure open space.

In his Dunlop lecture, Jonathan will speak about the importance of housing to breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty, largely through its effects on health.

Lecture will also be WEBCAST LIVE on the JCHS website.

The John T. Dunlop Lecture is supported by the
National Housing Endowment

Wed., Oct. 22, 2014, 10 – 11:30 a.m.



What is the Best Achievable Nuclear Reactor? Safety has always been a criterion for nuclear reactor design, but in addition to safety we design for security, sustainability, economic viability, as well as intergenerational justice. The evolution of nuclear reactor generations (I, II, III, III+ and IV) will be reviewed in this talk, led by MTA/ISP Research Fellow Behnam Taebi.

The IAEA's Nuclear Safeguards Culture: What is it and Does it Matter?
Fainsod Room, Littauer Building - Room 324
Wed., Oct. 1, 2014, 10 – 11:30 a.m.



In this Project on Managing the Atom seminar, MTA/ISP Senior Research Fellow Trevor Findlay will employ organizational culture theory to dissect the nuclear safeguards culture of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The origins and evolution of the culture since the IAEA's founding in 1957 will be examined, including the extent to which it reflects the organizational culture of the Agency as a whole and that of the United Nations. Differences between safeguards culture and safety and security cultures will be explored. A key question is the extent to which the Agency's safeguards culture has changed since the strengthening of nuclear safeguards following the discovery of Iraq's illicit nuclear weapons program in the early 1990s. The presentation will conclude with findings about the current state of the culture, the discontinuities it faces and what the IAEA might do about it. The research for this project is being funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

Graduate Student External Funding Workshop
Goldman Room, Busch Hall, 27 Kirkland Street
Thu., Sep. 25, 2014, 5:30 – 7 p.m.

Early in the Fall term CES organizes a workshop on proposal writing and dissertation research funding for graduate students. This workshop, led by the student programs coordinator, discusses strategies for developing a strong proposal, evaluation processes for external grants, differences in focus and approach for proposals in the social sciences and the humanities, and also surveys the most relevant sources of external funding. In addition, it parses specific proposals, both successful and less effective, in an attempt to offer some hands-on tools for mastering the skill of successful proposal writing. In the past, CES graduate students who won some of the most competitive external grants have joined the student coordinator and shared their insights and prose samples during the workshop.
