The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) is sponsoring a free webinar at noon EST on Wednesday (July 26) covering recently implemented employment laws across the country.
Those who attend the webinar will find out how new laws and enforcement of existing federal and state labor and employment rules impact small businesses and how to avoid lawsuits and employee complaints by keeping workplace policies up-to-date, according to NFIB.
NFIB Small Business Legal Center’s attorney Beth Milito will lead the interactive webinar covering these hot topics:
- Legalization of marijuana and the impact on drug testing and drug-free workplace policies
- New hiring laws, including “ban the box” and restrictions on applicant criminal and credit checks
- Wage and hour updates, with focus on state and municipal minimum wage and paid leave laws
- Worker classification enforcement, including discussion about independent contractor and joint employer scrutiny and the impact on workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance
