Landmark Employment Decisions Dominate Supreme Court's Recent Term 

Learn Everything You Need to Know About These New Rulings And What They Mean for Your Workplace by Attending Wessels Sherman's Highly Informative, Fast-Paced, One-Hour Webinar

Presenters:  James B. Sherman, Esq. & Chad A. Staul, Esq.

The United States Supreme Court ended its 2013 term just this week (June 26, 2013), issuing several hotly contested, split decisions on issues of great importance to employers across the country. Be one of the first to learn about these critical rulings and get solid advice on their implications for your workplace from the experienced employment lawyers of Wessels Sherman law firm. Some of the key Supreme Court decisions addressed in this webinar include:

U of Texas S.W. Med Ctr. v. Nassar - created a new standard of proof for retaliation claims, one of the fastest growing workplace litigation issues reported by the EEOC.

Vance v. Ball State - defined "supervisors" whose actions may result in strict liability for their employers in cases of sexual and other forms of unlawful harassment.

Fisher v. Univ. of Texas - created a stricter standard for permissible practices done in the name of affirmative action, when they affect non-minorities

United States v. Windsor - struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), making legally married same-sex couples eligible for dozens of federal and perhaps private benefits.

Participants in this webinar will learn how best to protect their workplace from claims of retaliation, harassment, reverse discrimination and benefit disputes under ERISA, FMLA and other laws in light of these new Supreme Court Decisions.  All this for the very low price of $100.00 - Click on the link below to register.
