There was a time when employment law was exclusively the concern of the firm's attorney, it was pretty much considered common sense. Today, employment laws are far-reaching, and firm leaders can't afford the luxury of ignorance. CPA firm leaders, not just those with a title of HR, must be up-to-date on the law, as well as all its fuzzy interpretations, and know how those laws apply to situations within their firm. This session will provide an overview of current Federal employment law. Participants will learn more about the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, essential EEOC documentation, FLSA Wage and Hour Law compliance, Employment-at-Will, hiring, disciplining and firing.
