    2016 is going to be a landmark year for our country: The first open race for U.S. President since 2008; another round of national elections that could further shift the balance of power in Congress; and the potential for even more regulatory and legislative burdens on the workplace.

    With a presidential administration solidifying its legacy, and America preparing to elect a new leader, is there a better - or any more important - time to be discussing  HR issues in our nation's capital?

    Burdens like wide-sweeping changes to FLSA overtime regulations and adjustments to health care costs under the Affordable Care Act – just to name a couple – are going to continue to majorly impact HR professionals, employers and employees across the country. This is where the 2016 Employment Law & Legislative Conference comes in - to proactively and strategically provide you with the timeliest information needed to prepare for what lies ahead – and then how to best engage to bring about change.
