Workshop 11 (Half Day)

EEO Update: Recent Developments in Employment Law

Keith M. Pyburn, Jr.
McCalla, Thompson, Pyburn, Hymowitz, & Shapiro, LLP

William W. Ruch

This Workshop will cover recent developments in national and state equal employment opportunity law. It will differ from the EEO Update offered last year in that the emphasis will be on the design of programs to ensure company compliance. The Workshop will present what employers should do to prevent successful challenges to their recruiting, selection, hiring, promotion, and other personnel practices and procedures. The application of recent developments affecting affirmative action programs will be discussed in terms of specific actions employers must take. New cases under the ADA will be discussed including their application to personality and integrity testing.
