Livonia, Mich. —August 26, 2015 — Amid a flurry of changing employment laws and practices, the American Society of Employers (ASE), one of the nation’s oldest and largest employer associations, will help bring clarity to employers with its annual, full-day Employment Law Workshop, to be held Thursday, Sept. 17 at the VistaTech Center at Schoolcraft College in Livonia.

“From the recent Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage, to increased minimum wage pressures and a tightening of rules on independent contractors, employers are faced with a rapidly changing legal landscape in the workplace,” Mary E. Corrado, ASE CEO, said. “ASE’s Employment Law Workshop will cut through the gray, ambiguous areas of employment law to help HR professionals stay informed and up to date.”

The Employment Law Workshop will feature attorney-led panels and specialized breakout sessions reviewing the laws and regulations that impact the day-to-day employer/employee relationship.

Highlights of the workshop include:

• “Ask the Lawyer” open forum lunch session
• Tips and strategies for maintaining a harmonious workplace
• Overview of Federal and State law changes
• Clarifying the impact recent Supreme Court decisions will have on employers
• Understanding how content in an employee handbook can help or hurt employers in legal claims
