How to Survive the Perfect Storm

“Historic trends and events are converging into a perfect storm that could place anti-discrimination at the center of corporate policy with an intensity unseen since passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964”, according to Dr. James Fadigan, one of the authors of the Title VII anti-discrimination provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and a leading authority on equal employment opportunity.

What’s causing that perfect storm? On October 27, I’ll be speaking about the ten crucial facts employers must face in 2009-2010 and what employers can do to avoid a shipwreck in this perfect storm.  I will deliver a workshop entitled “How to Survive the Perfect Storm: Legal Training for Your Managers “ at the 18th Annual Garden State Council Society for Human Resource Management Conference and Expo, scheduled for October 26th and 27th, 2009 at the Ocean Place Resort & Spa in Long Branch.

To help employers weather that perfect storm, I’ll be talking about: new state and federal laws that expand employee rights, explaining the enforcement trends that can lead to increased employer obligations and personal liability for managers and supervisors, and recommending what changes employers should make right now to protect employee rights and prevent corporate and personal liability.

In case you don’t already know them, the Society for Human Resource Management is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 250,000 members in over 140 countries, the SHRM serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession. This year’s Conference “Blueprint For A Changing Reality”, is a two-day educational session geared toward Human Resource practitioners that offers more than 40 knowledge-filled concurrent sessions; dynamic keynote addresses; and more than 50 of New Jersey’s leading HR vendors and outsourcing partners.
