Livonia, Mich. —August 29, 2016 — The American Society of Employers (ASE), one of the nation’s oldest and largest employer associations, will help attendees enhance their understanding of employment laws and regulations at its annual, full-day Employment Law Workshop, to be held Wednesday, Sept. 21 at the VisTaTech Center at Schoolcraft College in Livonia.

“One of the reasons Human Resources is such a dynamic profession is because laws regarding employment are always evolving, and in the past year, we have seen more HR regulatory activity than in the past six years,” Mary E. Corrado, ASE CEO, said. “ASE’s Employment Law Workshop agenda is based on timely issues impacting the workplace and practical ways for employers to respond to the evolving regulatory landscape. It also provides attendees with opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing with employment attorneys and HR colleagues.”

The Employment Law Workshop will feature a legislative update on Federal and State laws, 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:

• Weapons in the workplace
• New National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) interpretations on unionization
• “Ask the Lawyer” open forum lunch session
• What to expect with the new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) rules
• The evolving joint employer relationship
• Avoiding lawsuits from the termination process
• Medical Marijuana in the workplace
