9:00 ‒ 9:30 am | Top 10 Employment Law Developments 2020
Presented by: Paul L. Jackson and Stephanie Olivera Mittica
Our first session will address recent, noteworthy developments effecting employers. The topics will cover recent case law authority – including changes to Title VII, COVID-19 specific updates, and more.

9:30 ‒ 10:15 am | Wage and Hour Claims: The Most Dangerous Game
Presented by: Barry Y. Freeman
With all employers have to worry about, wage and hour claims may be the scariest. Wage and hour claims involve virtually automatic class claims, double and triple damages, and paying both sides’ attorney fees. And unlike discrimination or harassment, wage and hour is not intuitive. That makes it the most dangerous game.

10:15 ‒ 10:45 am | Workers’ Compensation Update – 2020
Presented by: Douglas E. Spiker
Changes to Ohio’s workers’ compensation, from voluntary abandonment, to changes in the statute of limitations, to another billion dollars back, are important for employers to be aware of. This session will bring employers up-to-date on this year’s changes to the system.

10:45 ‒ 11:00 am | Break

11:00 ‒ 11:45 am | Things Your Employment Lawyer Wants You to Know
Presented by: Karen D. Adinolfi
Employment lawyers counsel clients all day, every day, on workplace issues, and often find themselves facing the same issues and problems.  We often think that, if only my client had this information, we could avoid these repeated problems.

11:45 am ‒ 12:15 pm | The Employment Discrimination Law Landscape in 2020
Presented by: Aretta K. Bernard and Nathan Pangrace
This last session will discuss recent developments in employment discrimination law, including the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision that Title VII protects LGBTQ employees from job discrimination, the EEOC’s evolving guidance regarding COVID-19 and the ADA, and the Ohio General Assembly’s proposed amendments to state civil rights laws.
