Legislative Update
Presented by Andrew L. Metcalf, Associate, Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C.

After the mid-term elections, what will happen with labor and employment law at the federal and state levels? This presentation will get you up to speed on the latest developments and what to expect in the future. We will also discuss SHRM's and MOSHRM's efforts to advocate for legislative reform and educate legislators about how they can support HR professionals and employees in workplaces around Missouri and across the country.

Andrew represents business and public organizations in all aspects of employment law, including both litigation and human resources counseling. He assists clients facing lawsuits and administrative charges alleging employment discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and violations of other workplace laws and regulations, including the FMLA and FLSA. He has guided clients through investigations by the EEOC, Missouri Commission on Human Rights, the Department of Labor, and OSHA. Having extensive experience with complex employment litigation, Andrew offers strategies to ensure clients are efficiently and thoroughly protected in workplace legal matters. As a chapter editor for a treatise on the FMLA, Andrew has extensive knowledge about employee leave of absense laws.

Andrew also helps businesses and human resources professionals minimize risk by offering practical strategies and legal counseling on workplace policies, including the preparation and review of employee handbooks and employment contracts. He regularly speaks to business groups about best practices and litigation avoidance, and he is a frequent author about developments under Missouri law.

Andrew is a Committee Chair for SHRM of Greater St. Louis, and has led several initiatives to help HR professionals network and launch their careers.

This session has been approved for 1.0 hours of HR (General) HRCI Credit, and is eligible for 1.0 hours of SHRM Certification Credit.
