P3 - Labor and Legislative Power Session: Labor and Employment Developments of Importance to Human Resource Executives - What's in the Future for 2018?
- Date: Saturday September 16
The legislative, regulatory and union organizing areas have presented a number of challenges for health care employers in recent years. Employers can expect such challenges to continue in 2018 and beyond. In this session, we will include:
- Union organizing initiatives targeting physician and employee groups in both the acute care and clinic setting, legal and regulatory issues employers currently face and the expected new initiatives that will be present in 2018
- Tools to develop a proactive education and social media strategy to counter union efforts during traditional union campaigns as well as corporate campaigns
- A panel of Human Resource executives will discuss recent corporate campaigns and union organizing attempts at their facilities, lessons learned and tactics used in their union campaign
- Health care collective bargaining developments and human resource training options for employers.
Legislative and regulatory initiatives that will be discussed include legislative proposals pending in Congress and actions undertaken by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board), such as:
- The status of the prior Administration’s proposal to adjust the salary categories for exempt and non-exempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act
- The status of the EEOC’s proposed new EEO-1 report and the status of the Commission’s previously adopted wellness regulations
- Joint employer judicial and regulatory developments will be reviewed as will the potential impact of the composition of the new NLRB on employer policies and procedures including access to email and wording of employer handbooks and policies.
Finally, this session will also review important labor and employment developments at the state and local level and other important developments in labor and employment areas impacting health care organizations.
