Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC Charlotte

In 2022, employers faced an unprecedented labor market marked by falling unemployment, rising compensation, and the Great Resignation.  Those hoping for a reprieve in 2023 have been sorely disappointed.   Workers and management continue to battle over the permanence and feasibility of remote work.  Economic storm clouds have led to staffing reductions in some sectors.  Congress has stepped in to address issues relating to pregnancy, childbirth, and sexual harassment.  Accommodation requests relating to employee religious beliefs, disabilities, and pregnancy are garnering more attention and legal scrutiny.  Ultimately, employers need a diverse toolkit to address the important employment issues of 2023. 
Keith and Tory will provide an update on current legal landscape facing employers.  They will review recent case law developments from the Supreme Court, Fourth Circuit and North Carolina state courts.  Next, they will address new federal legislation providing additional protections to workers.  Finally, Keith and Tory will cover new guidance, regulations, and enforcement priorities at the agency level, including the EEOC, FTC, and DOJ. 

Our venue, Union at Station West, is a new centrally-located venue between I-77 and I-85, near I-277. The facility has ample free parking in the rear of the building and on nearby side streets.
