Your mission, should you choose to accept it:
Follow the clues, develop a strategy, conquer the opponent. Join us for our Fall Employment Relations Seminar - Mission: Possible - where Porter Wright agents will give you the inside scoop on the latest in labor and employment law.

Mission directives include:

Under Surveillance
Mike Underwood, Jamie LaPlante, Porter Wright
Melissa Linton - Compliance Assistance Specialist, Columbus OSHA

OSHA wants you to eliminate automatic post-accident drug testing. They also want you to discontinue any bonus incentive programs that use safety as a measuring stick. The likelihood of OSHA retaliation complaints are going up too. A series of recent OSHA interpretations and regulatory changes are very important for human resources and in-house legal professionals. We will cover those and also discuss changes you should be considering with the implementation of medical marijuana legislation in Ohio.

In the Hot Seat: Deciphering the Code
Charlie Warner, Brodie Butland, Porter Wright
James Paretti, EEOC

The agents of Porter Wright combine forces with the EEOC to walk you through the latest developments including retaliation, leave as a responsible accommodation, wellness programs and more.

Ghost Protocol: Protecting the Assets
Jason Starling, Molly Crabtree, Porter Wright

Digital life leaves footprints and HR is often an unwitting keeper of intelligence. How long should laptops, desktop profiles and other information 'be allowed to live' once an employee has left the company? Agents Starling and Crabtree focus on providing some practical e-discovery tips that are specific to the roles played by human resources personnel and in-house counsel in the litigation process. Topics include the basics of e-discovery, document retention policies and proper implementation of litigation holds.
