8:15 – 9:00  Registration and Breakfast

9:00 – 9:45 Let’s Get Started!
Navigating cyber security in a world of technology can feel confusing and overwhelming. Join Peter Herzog and Eric Langland as they review best practices when it comes to informational security and data breaches.

9:45 – 10:15 It’s on our Desks! Hot Topics in Managing HR 
HR issues seem to come in clusters. While legal changes often drive our work, there are recurring issues and themes that seem to hit our desks in cycles. Ann Freeman will discuss some of the issues that have been on our desks the last few months including “therapy dogs” in the workplace, “accommodating” the use of medical marijuana, and criminal background checks in light of the tightening workforce; she will discuss tips for preparing for these issues so that they are on your desk!

10:15 – 10:30  Break

10:30 – 11:15  Labor & Employment Update
In this session, Linda McGill will provide a legal update on the most recent developments in federal and state law related to labor and employment, and what you need to know.

11:15 – 11:50 HIPAA & Health Plans
Steve Gerlach will review regulations that affect employee health plans, and how employers can ensure HIPAA compliance when working with health plans.

11:50 – 12:00 Q&A Session
Your chance to submit questions, and discuss issues with our panelists!
