Disparate Impact: Employment Litigation & Proactive Audits

The economic downturn has taken a toll on the labor market and led to a growing wave of reduction-in-force (RIF) litigation. In addition, the recently passed Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act has sparked a number of pay discrimination lawsuits. Now more than ever, companies need to consider steps to limit litigation risk from layoffs or allegations of pay discrimination.

In this lively session, our economists will discuss the proper statistical analyses to examine disparate impact in terminations, promotions, and similar employment events as well as statistical analyses used in pay equity contexts. We will draw on examples from the plaintiffs' expert report in Dukes v. Wal-Mart to provide specific examples of how statistical analyses are misused and how to use them correctly.

  • How to win Family Friendly Employer Awards How to win Family Friendly Employer Awards Jennifer Liston-Smith Recorded: Apr 27 2016 60 mins
    Essentially, employer awards are a great way of building employer brand both internally and externally.

    They provide a 'short form' way of getting a company's message and culture out both internally, and to potential external talent.

    And in a marketplace where more of the talent than ever before has work and family commitments, some employers are leading the field!
    We’re joined by two organisations running key award schemes, Working Families and workingmums.co.uk, to discuss the trends in making work+family work and what they look for when it comes to award entries.

    We’ll also be hearing from multi award winning employers who’ll be sharing their stories.
  • What’s One Day Worth to Your Organization? What’s One Day Worth to Your Organization? Mark Schmitz, SVP, KinderCare Education Employer Solutions; Lynne Satlof-Karas, Dir of Corporate Services, Care.com Recorded: Apr 26 2016 61 mins

Two leaders in employer-sponsored family care solutions will share real-world examples of how leading employers across the U.S. leverage backup family care to get the job done every day.
  • Everyday stress: avoiding, surviving, mastering Everyday stress: avoiding, surviving, mastering Penny Moyle, CEO of OPP, and John Hackston, Head of Research Recorded: Apr 22 2016 47 mins
    We can all get stressed from time to time. Sometimes things really boil over, what MBTI users call ‘being in the Grip’, but much more often we just have to manage the everyday stresses of life.

    In this webinar, Penny Moyle, CEO of OPP, and John Hackston, Head of Research, will take you through how, when we become stressed, an over-reliance on our strengths means that we don’t perform at our best, but how an awareness of our MBTI Type will help us to avoid, survive and master the effects of stress. They will also show you how to use new imagery and resources to explain these concepts to others.

    You don’t need to be a qualified MBTI Practitioner to participate in this webinar, but it will help if you know your MBTI Type preference.

Its so easy to get caught up in the minutia – but you’ve got to get work done. And then there is your personal life…yes, that is important too!

  • FLSA Changes: Is Your Organization Prepared? FLSA Changes: Is Your Organization Prepared? Suzanne K. Lemen, SPHR, SHRM-SCP. CEO of Dynamic Corporate Solutions, Inc. Recorded: Apr 13 2016 58 mins
    The proposed Fair Labor Standards Act changes coming in 2016 will have major implications for your organization, but it will impact the bottom line most of all. Do you know what it will cost you in additional pay and overtime? Are you prepared to be audited if you have Independent Contractors?

    This one hour session will walk through all the current proposals and probable changes to the FLSA in 2016. Suggested pay rates will more than double for some employees, budgets will rise across the board as costs rise, and exemption categories are being inspected closely. There may be alternatives to these changes that you can use in your operation to make sure you’re in compliance NOW and plan for tomorrow.

    We’ll cover:

    • Strategies for dealing with the new requirements
    • Formulas for adjusting Salary/Hourly Rates
    • Communication Techniques for discussing these changes with employees
    • Are they Independent Contractors or Employees?
    • Who is exempt and who isn’t
  • Shared Parental Leave - One year on Shared Parental Leave - One year on James Marsh, HRreview; Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care; Xanic Jones, Citi; Kristen Doherty, Accenture Recorded: Apr 12 2016 60 mins
    So what has been the impact of Shared Parental Leave? Is it a revolution that’s finally taken the gender issue out of parenting, or still a small ripple among a few daring pioneers?

    One year on from the legislation coming into effect, this webinar will look at the following areas:

    • How employers have changed their parental pay and policies.
    • Take-up, strategic impact and the factors that have influenced it
    • What challenges and successes employers have experienced since implementing changes.
    • What employers have learnt and how it has affected their broader approach to working parents
  • Developing happy, engaged teams that flourish through growth mind-set Developing happy, engaged teams that flourish through growth mind-set Stephanie Davies, CEO of Laughology Recorded: Mar 22 2016 38 mins
    Today’s concept of a manager is about people development, being supportive to a variety of needs, having techniques to help you manage your own mood, put others in ‘good humour’, be resilient, self-motivated and motivate others amongst other more technical skills is a must. Being the ‘go-to manager’ that is approachable and supportive when others need you are all part of the skills needed in today’s working environment. Laughology understands the role of the manager has changed, in fact even using the term manager seems old fashioned. Team leaders, people leaders or even just leaders seems more apt. It’s all about knowing how to stay on-top in order to keep your team on-top, happy, supported and feeling good. Understanding more about the brain and how it works helps people and organisations increase their ability to recognise their potential and ability, to take on challenges, persist and develop. We call this Growth-mind set, developing people by encouraging high –expectations and supporting them through this process.

    Developing and supporting happy teams (what-ever you like to call yourself) starts with developing the individual. At Laughology we understand and have researched the principles of happiness and how to create teams and individuals that are emotionally flexible. We understand happiness is about understanding human beings, not about processes and systems but developing humans to help them reach their potential and in turn they will commit to helping the organisation reach theirs.
  • What levers can a team pull to become high performing? What levers can a team pull to become high performing? Joe Espana, Managing Consultant, Performance Management Recorded: Mar 18 2016 49 mins
    Teamwork is seen as a business prerequisite, but as we know not all teams operate at the same level. This is true at the top of an organisation as it is elsewhere in the business. Establishing the basics around clarity, team goals and dynamics will get you good teamwork and of course good results. The difference between a good team and a high performing team is small, but the results can be up to a 3 times as much. So what are the levers and what could a team and team leader do to develop them into a great team?

    This webinar aims to answer two questions:

    •What are the characteristics of a High Performance Team?
    •What can a team actually do to become one?

    Joining the C-suite requires a different skill set then being just a great HR professional. Do you struggle with getting your CEO's attention? Do you feel stuck in compliance and administration? How do you expand your perspective and get the recognition you deserve? The answers lie in taking control of your own career. This session will focus on what you need to do to be the strategic executive who is action-oriented and embraces technology to drive your strategic plan forward. This session is designed to empower you to integrate HR with the rest of the organization – and give you the voice to take your career anywhere you want to go!
