  February Legal Update with Jerilyn Jacobs 

of Weld Riley, S.C.

This semi-annual presentation will cover the major highlights of 2019, with an emphasis on the most recent court decisions, regulations, and administrative actions. The National Labor Relations Board has been busy in the recent months, and we will cover their recent activity. The U.S. Supreme Court is also poised to issue a major decision regarding federal protections for sexual orientation and transgender employees, and we will provide you with the latest. As always, we will talk about the trends both local and nationwide and have a little fun to help keep you one step ahead “in the game” of human resources.
