New Battle Lines for Employment Claims

How will recent developments in the law regarding (1) obesity discrimination, (2) discrimination based on sexual orientation and sexual identity, (3) stereotypes regarding accused harassers, (4) overtime exemptions, and (5) independent contractor definitions affect claims? This presentation does not just address new developments in the past year in the area of employment law; the presentation analyzes the impact the new developments will have on employment claims going forward.
