Businesses Get a Leg-Up on 2010 with Employers Groups Annual WELU Events

LOS ANGELES, CA, October 20, 2009 -– Speakers from the Disney Institute, Richard Simmons, and other top Employment Law attorneys are teaming up with Employers Group this fall to prepare businesses with the latest workplace trends and legislation facing employers in 2010. Employers Group will be hosting four Workplace Employment Law Updates (WELU) throughout California beginning in November. The WELU events are day-long programs full of legal updates, best practices, and need-to-know business knowledge.

Topics covered include:

• 2010 Legislation and Obama Actions Affecting Employers
• What You Don’t Know About Disabled Workers: New Federal and State Developments
• Post-Layoff Consequences: Adverse Impact
• Leading Through Turbulent Times
• In-House Counsel to HR: What You Should Be Doing Now
• Maximizing the Management of Leaves: From FMLA/CFRA to ADA/FEHA
• Protecting the Crown Jewels: Confidential Information and the Mobile Workforce
• Wage & Hour Developments and Cases Affecting Employers

Employers Group Director of Learning Services, Jeffrey Hull, provides some insight regarding the importance of the WELU, “Our event is unlike other employment law updates because we do not focus singularly on the laws that will affect employers in the coming year, but on overall issues that affect the workplace. Given the extensive challenges in 2009, we are pleased to have the Disney Institute speak on how to lead through turbulent times. I think everyone can agree it has been a rough year, and the WELU provides a breadth of knowledge to prepare companies for a better 2010. ”
