How to Be Your Company's Superhero
Surviving Federal Agency Scrutiny of HR Practices
Baker McKenzie lawyers presented a webinar focusing on the major changes to federal agency enforcement efforts against US human resource practices, and the current call to action for HR and Legal Departments.
In recent months, several US agencies have significantly stepped up enforcement actions, resulting in substantial fines, criminal sanctions, and orders for abatement against US companies. The immediate targets for US agency scrutiny include:
- SEC and OSHA focus on confidentiality clauses, including release and waiver form language and
- FTC and DOJ guidance aimed at HR recruitment practices and information sharing with other employers that can constitute criminal antitrust violations, resulting in civil and criminal penalties.
This webinar features a panel of lawyers discussing these major developments and how you can be a superhero by proactively revising your company's HR practices, forms and compliance training, now.
