Livonia, Mich. —April 28, 2016 — The American Society of Employers (ASE), one of the nation’s oldest and largest employer associations, will help bring clarity on changing employment laws to employers in the Mid-Michigan area with its annual Employment Law Workshop set for Wednesday, May 18 at the Horizons Conference Center in Saginaw.

“From the pending changes regarding overtime payments, questions about acceptable employee handbook language and the push for paid parental leave, 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 often 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 interactive breakout sessions reviewing the laws and regulations that impact the day-to-day employer/employee relationship. Highlights of the workshop include:

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