Evolving Legal Challenges for HR Managers in an Unprecedented Labor Market: Practical Guidance
We live and work in an unprecedented labor and employment landscape that has been transformed—maybe permanently—by the pandemic and the responses of workers and employers to these changes. Over the last two and a half years there has been a dramatic sustained decrease in labor force participation and the number of jobless workers actively looking for work. There are almost twice as many job openings as there are unemployed workers. The number of people quitting their jobs exceeds an unprecedented one-third of the total workforce. The Great Resignation. The Great Regret. And now the economic outlook points to a recession and the mass layoffs that usually accompany one. It's no surprise that the legal challenges facing employers and HR teams are also changing. Some of the changes have their roots in the pandemic and others have been accelerated by the pandemic and are now the norm. But how can HR professionals adjust to this new market? Join us for a discussion of some of the major areas of labor and employment litigation, and the strategies that can help HR managers proactively manage these challenges:
- Non-compete litigation in an environment of rapid job turnover and a shifting legal zeitgeist
- Increased employee departures and trade secret misappropriation
- The DOJ’s growing focus on no-poach hiring agreements between employers
- The latest trends in employment discrimination litigation, including challenges to the use of AI in applicant screening
