Angela Snyder will offer a workshop entitled 2017 Employment Law Review: Employment Law Compliance in a Brave New World

At the annual conference of the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network (MNN) on November 1, 2017, at the Sheraton in Framingham. The goal of this workshop is to educate participants on employments laws, HR risk, and compliance issues as these topics overlay the day-to-day operations of nonprofits. The presenters will look back historically at employment laws at the state and federal levels, examine the current state of employment laws, and look forward to anticipate changes—minor and major—on the horizon. This workshop will touch on many areas including OSHA, FSLA, FMLA, ADA, Pay Equity Law, Sick Leave, ACA, and what comes next. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of their own operations and where they may need to address issues that, if left unattended, could leave them at risk for non-compliance. This workshop is ideal for CFOs, HR professionals, Executive Directors/CEOs, and anyone else responsible for making sure that an organization is compliant with employment laws.
