Please join us in our Stamford office as we present highlights from our recent annual fall seminar. Connecticut’s mandatory paid sick leave law and the NLRB’s “concerted activity” protections are causing confusion and concern for employers of all types and sizes. Learn what key factors to consider in your policies and practices before you make a misstep.

No Music to Employers’ Ears

The National Labor Relations Board has taken a broad view of “concerted activity” under federal labor law, and has applied protections to employers that do not have unions. Even certain informal conversations between employees may be protected activity under the law.

This presentation will discuss the latest developments in this area, provide real-life scenarios to help employers determine which activities may be protected, and offer guidance on how to avoid potential problems.

Connecticut’s Mandatory Paid Sick Leave Law

Connecticut passed the first mandatory paid sick leave law in the country, but not many employers are celebrating. The law appears to be much more expansive than expected and raises more questions than answers for employers.

This presentation will help decipher the law, provide practical examples to reduce the confusion, and discuss the changes employers must make to their policies in order to comply with the law.
