General Session – Resilience and Renewal in the Workplace: A Roadmap for Your Tomorrow

After a year like no other, the Executive Employer Conference and its highly anticipated General Session will explore the dramatic changes the pandemic, a presidential election and widespread social reckoning have wrought in our workplaces. Our thought leaders will examine the growing role of inclusion, equity and diversity (IED) in the workplace and how the past year has made prioritizing IED conversations and action critical. We will unpack the new administration’s employment priorities and pinpoint what employers should expect and what they can do to prepare. We will identify the most pressing and complex return-to-work issues, including remote and wandering workers, COVID-19 burnout and vaccination rollout, as employers look to recover and rebound with strength and strategic vision. With its fast-paced and entertaining format, our traditional opening session will provide meaningful insight and solutions to these issues and more.

This session is not eligible for CLE credit.

Can’t Leave This Behind: Reviewing the Fallout from a Year of Novel Leave Issues and Strategizing for the Future

Since the start of the pandemic, new and expanded family/medical leave and paid sick/safe time laws and regulations have proliferated, with many, though not all, being COVID-related. At the same time, employers saw the emergence of novel leave-entitlement and litigation theories under existing laws and indications that the Biden administration may seek to enact even greater leave protections. In this session, we will take stock of these developments and their reverberations on the broader legal landscape, postulate about the road ahead, and provide strategies for employers to achieve leave-law compliance in the face of such rapid change.

When Every Day is “Blursday” – Wage and Hour Compliance for a Remote Workforce

Complying with the complex patchwork of wage and hour laws is difficult enough when managing a 9-to-5, Monday-to-Friday, office-based workforce. Now that millions of workers are adjusting to a more permanent remote work arrangement, wage and hour compliance is even more challenging. During this session, our panel will guide you on how to define and track “hours worked” when work-from-home employees are constantly juggling work and personal priorities throughout the day. As plaintiffs’ lawyers encourage remote workers to sue for unreimbursed home office expenses (including computers, phones, internet service, office supplies, and even a portion of utilities and rent), we will consider how to structure a reasonable expense reimbursement program. We will consider how transitioning to work-from-home may have transformed the nature of previously exempt jobs and discuss the perils of common “self-help” remedies undertaken when the employment relationship ends and home office equipment is not returned.

Our panel will focus on several critical topics, including:

  • The PRO Act and a Biden National Labor Relations Board
  • Likely changes to the independent contractor and joint employment standards
  • A refocused Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs
  • The Fight for 15 and other wage and hour issues
  • Immigration reform
  • The future of paid leave

Given the ambitious agenda of the new administration, this is not a session to miss.

COVID-19 – Its Impact on Employment Litigation, How Best to Prepare Your Company, and What the Future of Litigation May Hold

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immediate and ongoing impact on employment litigation across the country, affecting virtually every industry. Since the beginning of the pandemic, over 2,000 cases have been filed against employers, with more than 95% of those cases involving retaliation and discrimination claims. In this session, we will explore these pandemic-related litigation trends thus far, the types of claims we believe are on the horizon for 2021, and the steps employers ought to be thinking about now to prepare themselves for those claims. We will also provide predictions about how the pandemic may have changed the way the courts manage and handle litigation in the future.

Workplace Safety: Plans, Policies and Proactive Protections

The mad scramble to implement workplace safety measures last spring is not something anyone wants to repeat soon. However, while the frenzy is still fresh in mind, employers may want to think proactively about workplace safety and health measures to prepare for the next pandemic. Reviewing your safety and health response to COVID-19 could reveal lessons learned and help your organization look ahead and be proactive in preparing your workplace safety planning. This panel will discuss ways to turn the page and be better prepared for the next workplace safety and health crisis.

The Pandemic May Be Coming to an End, but New State Privacy Laws and Remote Work Complications Ensure that Data Protection Challenges Will Continue

Just as the pandemic ebbs in late 2021, employers will need to confront new data protection challenges. The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), effective January 1, 2023, will extend California’s existing privacy law to all human resources data, forcing employers to address a wide range of new compliance obligations with oversight by the first-ever state regulator dedicated to enforcing privacy law. Compliance obligations will include new notice requirements, vendor contract requirements and employee rights. Nearly a dozen states have similar, but materially different, proposed legislation likely to be enacted in 2021 or 2022, potentially requiring significant attention just as employers will need to grapple with the data protection and information security issues raised by the post-pandemic persistence of remote work.

New challenges include implementing surveillance tools to monitor employees’ productivity, extensive recording through video conferencing platforms, and authenticating the identity of job applicants who never appear for an in-person interview. This session will examine the upcoming issues and provide practical guidance for addressing these tectonic legislative and operational shifts.

WPI: Employment Laws of the Future – America’s Cities and States Incubate New Ways to Regulate the Workplace

In the past five years, cities and counties across the U.S. have created a new frontier for labor and employment laws, such as:

  • Mandatory sick leave (Duluth, Chicago, Berkeley)
  • Hazard pay for grocery store workers during the pandemic (Seattle, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Montebello)
  • Paid leave and mandatory medical care for healthcare workers who contract COVID-19 (Philadelphia)
  • The “Right to Recall” in inverse order of seniority following a layoff (Pasadena, Oakland, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Baltimore)
  • “Predictability Pay” when work schedules are changed (New York, Chicago, Emeryville)
  • Leaves of absence for gig workers and independent contractors (Seattle, Los Angeles)

As these new laws emerge, the challenge for employers is twofold:

  1. Little or no notice of pending and dramatic changes in the law; and
  2. A forum for consideration (a city council meeting), which can be openly hostile to business interests.

The states are in the mix as well, inventing new and creative ways to regulate the employer-employee relationship and independent contractor relationships.

Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute (WPI) tracks these developments and works with the employer and business community to shape policy as it is being developed. In this session, a panel of Littler WPI employment law attorneys will identify the major trends in city and state employment laws, discuss strategies and options for organizing a response as new laws are debated and considered, and recommend solutions for compliance with the growing patchwork of regulatory obligations.

Tracking the Exit from “Crisis Fatigue”: A (Virtual) Fireside Chat

It’s 2021 and we have been wondering if you are still stressed about the pandemic and all of its various strains? Zoom burnout? “Bubbles” and “Pods”? Working from home or working on the front lines? The COVID economy? Vaccine angst? Persisting barriers to equity? The future of inclusion after months of perfecting the art – and science – of isolation? If your answer is “Yes” to any of the above, you are in good company. And while we hoped – and would still like to believe – that 2020’s overlapping crises would not persist too deeply into 2021, “Crisis Fatigue” (yes, that’s a thing) is affecting everybody in some form or manner. We have all been enduring the ultimate stress-test of our times.

The compound challenges that portray our “New Normal” are consuming so many of our personal and professional resources as we all try to navigate the route to the “Next Normal.” Know that you are not alone.

Please join us for an upfront-and-personal discussion among your very own Littler attorneys who will share their lived experiences about the crises that bind us, in addition to providing strategies and guidelines for our collective journey ahead.

Takeaways for participants will include:

  • The significance of identifying the effects of “Crisis Fatigue” as people and as business leaders
  • Relatable tools for managing “Crisis Fatigue”
  • Practical ways business leaders can elevate their authenticity, compassion, consciousness and mindfulness
  • Action steps for strengthening our respective inclusion competencies
  • Reimagining what meaningful “inclusion” and “equity” will require from business leaders in a post-pandemic era so the fallout from the current challenges do not eradicate the strides that organizations have made in this area in the past decade

The Workplace of the Future: Strategies for a Successful, Humanized Workforce in a Digitized World

The pandemic and the digital revolution have uprooted and transformed industries and workplaces across the globe. Our reliance on technology and artificial intelligence has advanced at record speed. The acceleration of remote work environments has created a new norm of virtual interaction, which in many instances has put a strain on workforces’ ability to maintain resilience – some call it the “pandemic burnout” effect. As we move toward a technology-riddled, post-pandemic new normal, the human element of workplace management and compliance must lead human capital strategic planning. Our panel will discuss the evolution of employment laws and workplace practices and use that history to discuss how organizations can successfully blend the value of the digital era with the post-pandemic needs of their workforce.

The EEOC: What to Expect from the New Administration

This session will explore what employers may expect with “new management” at the EEOC. Because Democrats will remain in the minority at the Commission for some time, the agency’s ability to: (a) move forward on significant policy matters that do not enjoy bipartisan support; (b) issue new guidance or regulations; and (c) revisit the prior administration’s policies and priorities may be limited, at least in the short term. Which rules and initiatives rolled out during the last four years will remain and which will be on the chopping block? What issues will be ripe for consideration when Democrats attain a majority on the five-member Commission in 2022? We will focus on the agency’s day-to-day enforcement activities, its litigation program, and where the EEOC will likely focus its attention now and in the future.

Divide and Rule: Does the Move to Remote Working Strip Trade Unions, Works Councils and Employee Representatives of Their Power?

It’s trite to say that the pandemic has changed the nature of work forever. But what about the nature of representation at work?

Polar Opposites: Navigating Ideological Identity Politics in the Global Workplace

As companies expand beyond one location and become deliberately diverse, it is inevitable that a diversity of viewpoints will also develop. Increasingly, employees identify less along traditional lines of place, religion, ethnicity or even political party, and more according to newer identities linked to specific political positions – for example, BLM, veganism, climate change and environmentalism, and trans-rights activism/gender-critical feminism. This session explores how HR and legal can help businesses navigate these choppy waters, and when “staying neutral” is not an option.

The Wandering Worker: Maintaining Compliance as Workplaces Disaggregate

The pandemic has driven a massive change in the ways we work, including a widespread shift to remote work that was unthinkable roughly a year ago. Post-pandemic, much of the workforce is expected to continue working remotely. This shift, which allows people to work from anywhere, creates myriad employment law issues. If the employee is working in a different jurisdiction, or between jurisdictions, what are the leave and benefit requirements? What are the tax withholding requirements? How can a firm legally monitor and manage productivity and performance in a remote environment? This session will explore these and other novel issues that will arise as remote work endures.

AI in the Workplace: Maintaining Employment Law Compliance When Harnessing Big Data

Big data and artificial intelligence (AI) are powerful tools that firms can leverage to gain insights into their workforce’s performance and productivity. AI is also being deployed to gain efficiency in recruiting, reduce human bias, and potentially to aid firms in meeting diversity, equity and inclusion objectives. AI-based decision-making does not fit neatly into current paradigms for analyzing discrimination claims, however, and therefore presents potential risk. In addition, as more employee data is collected and analyzed, firms must be prepared to meet privacy obligations imposed by law. This session will consider the potential risks and benefits of utilizing AI in the workplace and measures firms can take to mitigate those risks.
